June 7, 2017 JS Registered New Technology on its Innovation Program Achieve massive reduction of screenings and compact treatment to reduce LCC

Japan Sewage Works Agency (JS) has been running JS Innovation Program* since 2011. The program aims to encourage the development of new technologies that meet various needs of municipal wastewater business and facilitate the adoptions of the innovative technologies to our entrusted projects.
JS adds the following two technologies on the Program.

Crushing/Dewatering Functioned Screen Unit with Vertical Screw
  • Developer:
    JS, Sumitomo Heavy Industries Environment Co., Ltd.
  • Technology Summary:
    Screen unit that has two functions of conventional screen crusher and fragments collection/conveying enables compact screenings treatment. Besides, in-water crushing of screenings that washes fecal matter effectively and dewatering during conveying massively reduce the generation of screenings. The unit is expected to reduce LCC by the reduction of disposal costs for screenings and omitting the subsequent facilities.

* Note that JS Innovation Program verifies registered technologies for their applicability only at JSf entrusted projects. The verification is not valid for any project other than JSf management.
