About Hazaka Plant

This page introduces the outline, features and other information on the Hazaka Plant.

Hazaka Plant is a facility which performs high-speed fermentation processing of organic waste in 25 days

The origin of the Hazaka Plant is the "production of compost" in the traditional way of Japan

The production of compost which circulates the waste of any organic discharge as a resource is a natural material recycling system created by our predecessors. However, the ideology and techniques which have been inherited from parents to children, is beginning to disappear along with the development of waste incineration plants. Along with this, the environmental issues and the deterioration of soil productivity have been produced.
The Hazaka Plant established a method to perform high-speed fermentation processing of organic waste in 25 days by learning from nature, to breed indigenous microorganisms to the maximum. We hand over the wisdom of our predecessors to the next generation, and contribute to the solving of environmental and soil productivity issues.

Fermenting and decomposing organic waste by the ability of bacteria

The Hazaka Plant prepares the environmental conditions suitable for fermentation. We do not add bacteria (microorganisms). More than 10 billion bacteria per gram are naturally bred, to ferment and decompose the organic waste. Most garbage and dehydrated sewage sludge can be decomposed. Mixing woody materials, such as chaff and wood waste into the garbage and sludge will produce compost.

For those who want to know the types of processible organic waste, refer to the following Generation of Organic Waste page. For details on the collection and transportation of organic waste, refer to the Cleaning, Collection & Transportation page. For details on the structure of the organic waste treatment process, refer to the Structure of Organic Waste Treatment Process page.

Solves the waste of energy without destroying the global environment

In contrast to incineration processes which use large volumes of fossil fuels and discharges large amounts of carbon dioxide, the Hazaka Plant discharges almost no carbon dioxide which originates in fossil fuels. For this reason, the plant can also contribute to the reduction of carbon-dioxide emissions. The compost produced in the Hazaka Plant has gained in popularity and is used by many farmers. Furthermore, the plant is also excellent in economic efficiency, as the construction and maintenance costs can be minimized.

For comments from farmers who use the compost produced in the Hazaka Plant, refer to the following Interviews with Agricultural Producers page. For those who are considering the construction of a Hazaka Plant, refer to the Construction of Hazaka Plant page.
