Company Profile

Creating a sustainable environment with innovative ideas

Technoplan holds a number of patents on innovative technologies that generate energy from organic waste. The “vacuum levitation device” has made it possible to significantly reduce costs compared to the conventional “pressure levitation device”. The “steam ejector type methane fermentation device” can improve the digestibility in conventional methane fermentation by 30% or more.
The “compost carbonizer” eliminates the exhaust gas treatment equipment required for conventional composters and carbonizers.
The “secondary dehydrator” can eliminate the need for a conveyor for transporting dehydrated sludge.

These technologies have been put into practical use with public subsidies (500 million yen or more) through industry-academia-government collaboration. (See the list of attached development projects)
The “vacuum levitation device” has dramatically improved the performance of existing dehydrators.
The performance of the “steam ejector-type methane fermenter” was confirmed in a sewage treatment plant after five years of actual demonstration.
The performance of the “compost carbonizer” was confirmed in a one-year demonstration operation of sewage sludge.
The “secondary dehydrator” has been demonstrated in sewage sludge in China.

Unit operations related to the environment and energy include “concentration,” “methane fermentation,” “drying,” “composting,” “carbonization,” “incineration,” and “power generation,” and we are good at simulating these optimal systems. 
In Japan, 2 local governments and 2 private companies, and in China, 1 local government and 2 private companies are proceeding with business plans by optimization simulation using our patented technology.

Technoplan Inc. is an expert in Japanese environmental technology with biomass technology.

Technoplan Inc. has been developing technologies for producing renewable energy and valuable resources using biomass, such as innovative enrichment, dehydration, methane fermentation, composting, drying, carbonization, and incineration. 

These technologies were developed in collaboration with industry, academia and government as a subsidized project of the Japanese government and local governments. In order to create a sustainable society that can create renewable energy and employment, we would like to disseminate these technologies in the environmental ESCO project for cost reduction including continuous maintenance.
