In this research, material flow is viewed as a series of steps from product manufacturing to consumption, charge and collection, reuse, recycling, intermediate treatment, and final disposal. By centrally managing and utilizing information at each stage of the material flow, we aim to build a solid waste infrastructure DX platform that optimizes waste treatment and resource recycling.
Specifically, we are conducting research related to the following issues.
・Construction of a system to predict waste emissions
・Development and practical application of sensor technology, power supply technology, and communication device technology for monitoring waste landfill sites and their surrounding environment
・Construction of a collaborative platform between arterial and vein industries that integrates waste management and resource recycling. Creating a proposal for a concrete socio-economic model
・Establishment of a regional electricity supply-demand coordination system
The Faculty of Engineering (Department of Urban Environmental Engineering) and the Faculty of Information Science and Electrical Engineering (Department of Electronics) will conduct joint research.
The research is funded by a donation from Hitachi Zosen Corporation and will last for three years, from April 2022 to March 2025.
