MHIEC Receives Order for Plant Modification Work To Extend Operational Life of Municipal Solid Waste Incineration Facility With 225 Tons/day Processing Capacity in Kyoto
A stoker furnace is a common feature of MSW incineration plants. In a stoker furnace, MSW is combusted as it moves along on a fire grate made of heat-resistant castings.
The Hybrid Bag Filter is a highly advanced catalyst bag filter. Besides conventional ability to remove harmful substances, this proprietary product of MHIEC can also break down gaseous dioxins (DXN) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) thanks to a coating of catalyst applied to the bag filter's fibers.
This program, which falls under the jurisdiction of Japan's Ministry of the Environment, targets effective use and improvement of existing waste treatment facilities as a contribution to the prevention of global warming. Local (city, town or village) governments that seek to extend the operational life of their MSW facilities are eligible to receive subsidies covering one-third to half of the project cost, dependent on the CO2 reduction rate.
