Tsukinoura Center ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ They use Private Finance Initiative (PFI) to build and carry on our facilities where human waste and water purifying sludge are recycled as manure. They accept the human waste and water purifying sludge which are collected from Minamata, Tsunagimachi and Ashikitamachi. Then they apply microbes to process the waste and sludge by using an RBS, reactor biosystem. This processed waste and sludge are dehydrated, dried and then recycled as manure. The features of the RBS are that: it is capable of processing in concentrated form, it is highly effective at suppressing odor, the sludge has many beneficial properties and it is also highly effective at eliminating contamination. Therefore, they can process concentrated solution without the need for dilution and our plant is space-saving, does not generate much order and does not require special deodorizing equipment. Manure made from good sludge contains rich organic matter and minerals and so has acquired a favorable reputation in the Minamata and Ashikita areas.
