Processing and disposal of solid waste

R&D efforts (Application development linked to plant applications and actual use)

Ongoing projects

Research and Development of Processing and Disposal of Solid Waste(Project of Decommissioning and Contaminated Water Management)
Summary

 Based on prospects of processing / disposal method and technology related to its safety shown in FY2021, we consider further possibilities for reducing waste volume. In addition, in order to extract waste streams according to the characteristics of solid waste, while reflecting the progress of understanding the properties, we will create options for treatment / disposal measures and compare / evaluate them, and manage solid waste as a whole. We will proceed with the examination for the presentation of appropriate countermeasures.

Action items
  1. Characterization
    (1) Acquisition and management of analysis data, etc.
    (2) Efficiency of characterization
  2. Storage / Management
    (1) Development of pollution assessment technology for sorting solid waste
    (2) Development of volume reduction / reuse technology
  3. Processing / Disposal
    (1) Processing technologies
    (2) Disposal technologies
    i. Investigation of information and knowledge necessary for presenting the concept of disposal
    ii. Trial to improve the reliability of safety evaluation technology for solid waste disposal
Implementation plan
