Development of autonomous and decentralized waste treatment system
This team will develop autonomous and decentralized waste treatment system that does not require waste sorting. As the first step, the team will test a mobile system that combines subcritical water treatment and carbonization treatment. In the second step, they demonstrate the elimination of residual microplastics via biological treatment. The processed material will be formed into pellets for use as fuel, or used to generate methane gas through fermentation for use in biomass power generation to produce electricity.
