Three communities ink pact for new incinerator

Date Posted: 2009-03-26

A new waste incinerator will soon be constructed to serve Okinawa and Ginowan Cities, as well as Chatan Town.

The three municipalities have just signed an agreement to organize the Kurahama Hygiene Facility Association to build the new plant, which is to go online in April 2010. Mitsuko Tomon, Okinawa City’s mayor, heads the joint project. “The agreement has been done so smoothly, I feel so happy to have finally completed it,” she says, pledging “I will do my best work” as the facility is constructed.

The new incinerator will have a gas system and molten furnace system. The facility, which will have a daily capacity of destroying 309 tons of waste, is to be built at Ikehara District of Okinawa City. The project has been coordinated with representatives of neighboring communities, including Noborikawa, and with local farmers who live around the Kurashiki Dam Basin Development Promotion Committee area.

The project was initially designed in 2007, but was revamped to provide more stringed pollution prevention rules, which local officials say exceed Japanese government standards. The new agreement also spells out construction and pollution prevention details, and identifies needed area action fees, subsidy funds, and annual support monies.
