Product Recycling Product Recycling


Basic Stance

It is the Advantest Group's basic policy to take active steps to ensure that the products we sell are reused and recycled after they are retired, and to buy back products that are not expected to be reused so that the resources can be recycled.

Recycling policy

  1. Realize 100% collection of recyclables through manual disassembly.
  2. Make clear to whom recycling is to be commissioned, and secure traceability.
  3. Promote the conservation of the global environment in collaboration with customers.
  4. Properly dispose of harmful substances (Hazardous substances: mercury relay, ion type smoke sensor, internal cooling water, Fluorinert)

Fiscal 2016 Results

During fiscal 2016, the Group recycled 5 retired products for a total of approximately 48 tons of recycled resources, achieving 98% collection of recyclables. In addition, the Group has established recycling traceability for each discarded product. This was made possible through the cooperation of customers, intermediaries, and waste disposal businesses across the country. We will further improve work efficiency, reduce the burden on customers, and encourage environmental preservation.
