Methane Fermentation System
Kawasaki has methane fermentation system which converts organic waste to biogas and advances a suggestion a facility combined methane producing and combusting as one of the methods suited to municipal waste processing. We attained the standard of highly efficient raw fuel recovery (biogas generation per input waste; more than 150m3N/t and the amount is more than 3,000m3N/a day) which the Ministry of Environment defines in the demonstration plant. For an efficient raw fuel recovery facility, the grant rate of a subsidy becomes high with one half.
Characteristic of this method is high ratio of gas production by methane fermentation at high temperature and recovery of methane even from paper waste inmixed. It allows some tramp material (plastic)caused by machine sorting and doesn't need sorted collection of waste.
