Waste management: Hydrothermal Treatment Technology

Waste management: Hydrothermal Treatment Technology

Shinko Tecnos Co.,Ltd.



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.

Technology Data

Technology data


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).

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.
