IRI Philippines, Inc. is the first company in the Philippines specializing in solid waste recycling and reclamation services. Since 2001, the company has been servicing the waste disposal requirements of the country's semiconductor and electronics industries. In 2004, IRI has realized its vision of becoming a fully-integrated waste recycling company. Now a total environmental company, it offers its clients:
Guaranteed Protection of Proprietary Intellectual Products
It is our commitment to protect the client's proprietary intellectual products and our company guarantees destruction of all production rejects and sub standard products. Materials are purchased strictly and solely for metal recovery only. Proprietary software are erased, tapes are degaussed and documentation destroyed protecting your confidential information.
Reports will be published to satisfy traceability requirements and to ensure accountability.
Metal Recovery Sytem
In 2004, IRI invested in US$2.5 million state-of-the-art metal recovery system, the first in the country. Capable of treating hazardous waste materials, the system does actual recycling of clients' scrap materials. The resulting products are raw materials which are exported minus the hazardous wastes.
The facility boasts of the following:
Integrated Recycling Industries (IRI) was established in the Philippines as a trading office in 1993. Materials purchased were exported for processing abroad.
In December 2000, IRI was incorporated as a new Philippine corporation. The incorporation saw the dynamic fusion of foreign financial and technological resources and Filipino talent. Henceforth, IRI went full speed ahead in working towards becoming a world-class and leading recycling and reclamation facility. In January 2001, IRI obtained its Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) registration.
IRI realized the difficulties inherent in exporting scrap materials, specifically those which are hazardous in nature, from the Philippines to other countries. Due to this and in compliance with the Basel Convention and other international protocol, IRI decided to put up a central treating facility where it is required the most-close to the major center of the Philippines'semiconductor and electronic industries.
On January 2002, soon after the completion of its Building A which houses the offices and crushing facilities, IRI started commercial operations, servicing the waste disposal requirements of multinational companies, e.g. Intel Philippines Mfg. Co., Philips Semiconductor, Amkor Technologies, Inc.; Integrated Microelectronics, Inc.
It became the first and only company in the Philippines specializing in the recycling and reclamation of non-ferrous and precious metals from electronic production rejects, computer parts and telecommunication equipment. It is also engaged in the trading of nonferrous and precious metals, as well as recycled plastic materials.
On February 2002, IRI became a member of the Semiconductor and Electronics Industries in the Philippines, Inc. (SEIPI). In the meantime, expansion efforts continued and in June 2002, ground breaking was held for the construction of two additional buildings. These were built for the treatment of hazardous materials, metal recovery, and additional warehouse space.
Two significant certifications were acquired that same year. In August 2002, IRI was awarded ISO 14001:1996 certification; and in October 2002, ISO 9001:2000 certification.
As early as its first year, operations were profitable exceeding break-even expectations. From January 2002 to January 2003, IRI's number of customers increased from less than 20 to more than 40.
January 2003 marked the completion of Buildings 2 and 3 and in October 2004. IRI's Metal Recovery System was completed, making IRI a fully-integrated recycling company a total environmental company.
IRI complies with all existing environmental laws and regulations. It carries the permits and licenses required by government to ensure environmental protection:

The company's three buildings stand on a 12,000 sq.m. lot. Building A is 2,500 sq.m. and houses offices and crushing facilities. Building B, 1,900 sqm, houses additional warehouse space and Building C, 1,600 sqm. houses the treatment and metal recovery plants. It uses state-of-the-art machinery and equipment such as a printed wiring board treatment plant, a metal recovery facility, solder dross/paste treatment machine, crushing machines, press machines, electronic weighing equipment, non-ferrous metal separator, and chip grinders.
To complete its servicing, IRI also has its own transportation facilities and partners with international shipping and forwarding companies to ensure safe pick-up and delivery of goods.
All these are available under tight security provided by the business park and IRI's own CCTV system.
