To establish the sound material-cycle society, our laboratory is aiming at developing procedures to analyze, manage, designand control treatment and disposal systems for solid wastes, including recycling and resource
recovery, by applying techniques based on disciplines of Transport Phenomena, Environmental Systems Engineering and Environmental Chemical Engineering. By performing fundamental and applied experiments in bothlaboratory and field scales and using computer analysis andsimulation, we approach the following subjects;
1) Development of the technology about waste proper treatment, recycling and energy recovery.
2) Control of trace hazardous substances.
3) Evaluation and optimization of waste treatment and management systems.
Our laboratory also belongs to Department of Environmental Engineering, Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University,and is located at Katsura Campus. Technical Staff Kenji Shiota and students in Graduate School of Engineering are workingtogether here.
