Shinko Tecnos Co.,Ltd.

Hydrothermal Treatment

Technology for Useful Output

 

Shinko Tecnos Co., Ltd.’s Hydrothermal Treatment processes waste materials by making it react with high-temperature and high-pressure steam (Max 230℃/ 3Mph) inside the reactor. After about a half hour of treatment, the result is a germ-free, useful output ranging from solid fuel and fertilizer to liquid fertilizer or livestock food.

This is an ideal product for use in developing countries, where they rarely have the opportunity to turn waste into fuel or other usable product. This technology is a solution to convert waste into a resource. Using only water and nothing else, the simple process uses heat to cause decomposition. The final result does not cause pollution.

While the final product depends on the processed material, there is no disputing the usefulness of this technology. Here are the types of applicable waste: Municipal solid waste, Household garbage, Sludge, Animal droppings.

The process essentially starts by mixing food waste, then the mixed food waste will be loaded into the reactor, undergoes 30 minutes of treatment, and emerges as the desired product.

     

Major Features and Advantages

I. Small-Scale Experiments Possible

Shinko Tecnos Co., Ltd. has a small-scale experiment plant, which means it can conduct various tests on a small scale before starting a costly large-scale projects.

II. Low Operation Costs

To reduce running costs, it is possible to install a special boiler using this machine’s product as a fuel. Although some final products simply can’t be utilized as a fuel due to their low calorific value.

III. Short Operational Times

Each process is fairly quick, taking just 2.5 to 3.5 hours per process. The easy maintenance checks and operation management processes are easy to learn and apply.

IV. Versatility

The final product can be used in many different ways, such as solid fuel, solid fertilizer, liquid fertilizer or livestock food. Solid fuel can generate electricity. The process can be applied to many types of unused resources, also known as waste. Materials that can be treated include municipal solid waste, medical waste, chicken droppings, cow dung, pig droppings, lunch waste, vegetables, fruits, fish meat, fish work residue, sludge, and household garbage.

Shinko Tecnos Co., Ltd.’s machine uses high-pressure and high-temperature steam. Therefore, caution must be taken in order to operate the machine. The company plans to offer on-site training to local operators to help them learn how to operate the machine in a safe manner.

Technology Data

Conceivable applications

Our Hydrothermal Treatment is a treatment method which generates a reaction of material with high temperature and high pressure steam (Max 230℃/ 3Mph) inside the reactor. After 30 minutes of treatment, a germ free and useful output can be obtained, such as solid fuel, solid fertilizer, liquid fertilizer or livestock food.

Solid fuel can use for generate electricity.

※Final product depends on processed material.

Competitive advantage

Our company possesses a small-scale experiment plant. Thus, various tests can be performed before starting a big-scale project.

In order to reduce running cost, a special boiler using this machine’s product as a fuel can be installed (Some final products cannot be used as a fuel because of their low calorific value).

Our customers have been operating this plant every day for a couple of years and have a great experience of it.

Performance

Inside the reactor, macromolecules react with high temperature and high pressure steam, and disintegrate themselves to low-molecular material. Organic matter in the material is quickly disintegrated.

◆ Can be used for various types of unused resources (waste)
  <Materials which can be treated>
  Municipal solid waste, medical waste, chicken droppings, cow dung, pig droppings, lunch waste,
  waste vegetables, waste fruits, waste fish meat, fish work residue, sludge, household garbage,
  EFB, etc.

◆ Short-time process (2.5~3.5 hours for one process)

◆ Final product can be used as solid fuel, solid fertilizer, liquid fertilizer or livestock food.
  Solid fuel can use for generate electricity.
  ※ Final product depends on processed material.

◆ Easy maintenance check and operation management.

Conceivable risk

This machine is using high pressure and temperature steam. Therefore, operation must be carefully done. (We will provide onsite trainings to the local operators for a few weeks in order to operate the machine together with the customers and provide an operation manual).

Modality of business transaction

Direct Investment
We are looking for local investors who want to invest for our waste treatment project(s).

Partnership
We are looking for local partners, who can take responsibility for the financial investment, setting up, commissioning and trial operation of our machine. At the initial implementation stage, we would send a supervisor from Japan to the local plant site. In return, we would ask our local partners to send their workers to the plant site. In the end, we would like our local partners to operate, manage and maintain the plant.
