Kawasaki to Build and Operate Waste Treatment Facility in Sukagawa

Feb. 17, 2016

Tokyo, February 17, 2016 — Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the Sukagawa Region Health and Environment Association for a project covering the construction and operation of a new regional waste treatment facility. Under the association's design-build-operate (DBO) project, a joint venture between Kawasaki and Asunaro Aoki Construction Co., Ltd. will design and construct the waste-to-energy facility, and then Green Park Sukagawa Co., Ltd., a special purpose company funded by Kawasaki and Shinki Corporation, will operate it over a 20-year period.

The waste treatment facility to be built under the project will be capable of treating 95 tons of waste per day using two incinerators (each with a capacity to process 47.5 tons in 24 hours). It will employ the company's proprietary parallel flow incinerators to burn waste completely with small amounts of air. The facility will also be equipped with bag filters, a flue gas recirculation system, and other advanced flue gas processing systems, designed to reduce emissions of hazardous substances such as dioxins and carbon monoxide as well as gas in general. On top of that, each of the incinerators combines high-temperature, high-pressure boilers and extraction condensing turbines for highly efficient electric power generation (with a maximum output of 1,990 kW). They will supply all the electricity the facility needs with surplus power left over to sell.

Boasting a wide range of waste treatment technologies in addition to the stoker incinerator, Kawasaki will continue to develop innovations and deliver products that answer today's complex environmental problems and needs.
