Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Environmental & Chemical Engineering has received an order from Kawasaki City to build its Tachibana Waste-to-Energy Plant, a municipal solid waste (MSW) incineration plant in Kawasaki's Takatsu District.

Tokyo/Japan — The existing facility will be rebuilt as a stoker type incinerator with a total waste treatment capacity of 600 tonnes per day (tpd). A stoker furnace is the main type used at MSW incineration plants. The solid waste is combusted as it moves along on a fire grate made of heat-resistant castings. The order is a joint venture project with Taisei Corporation, and is valued at 29.8 billion yen ($ 281 million). Completion is scheduled for September 2023.

The Tachibana Waste-to-Energy Plant had operated for around 40 years, but the facilities have aged and the incineration plant ceased operations in March 2015. The Waste-to-Energy Plant subsequently closed in 2016. The current facilities will be dismantled and removed, and construction will begin on the new center. The new MSW incineration plant will comprise three stoker type incinerators, each with a capacity of 200 tpd, as well as other related equipment.

Conversion of Waste into Butanol and Hydrogen

01/02/2018 - The application of high pressure and steam is a proven method for the mobilisation of valuable components from biomass. Wageningen Food & Biobased Research is contributing to the project "Production of butanol and hydrogen by fermentation techniques using steam treated municipal solid waste (MSWBH)" with its expertise on fermentation and the use of anaerobic bacteria for the production of biobased chemicals. read...

The company acquired MHI's waste treatment plant business in 2008, incorporating their environmental protection systems technology, as well as its expertise in the construction and operation of waste management facilities in Japan and overseas.
