We are conducting research on environmentally safe and economical technologies for solid waste recycling, treatment and final disposal, aiming to contribute the realization of a sustainable society and a sound material-cycle society from academic perspectives. We pursue outcomes which can be put to practical use on the basis of industry-government-academia collaboration. In addition, we are conducting research on development of disaster waste treatment system dealing with large amount of disaster waste rapidly and smoothly for early recovery and reconstruction of affected areas, taking into account the fact that large-scale natural disasters, such as great earthquakes and heavy rains, are occurring frequently. Furthermore, the economic development in the Asian region in recent years and the resulting severe environmental destruction are exerting an undeniable impact on Japan's environment. Therefore, we are conducting international studies in cooperation with overseas governments and universities on the development of appropriate solid waste management and the recycling technologies considering peculiar environment and conditions of Asian region.
