My Areas of Research

Developing technology to recover resources from the sludge produced by sewage processing

The water we use becomes sewage. It is purified at treatment plants but many contaminated compounds still remain in the form of sludge. This sludge includes useful substances such as organic materials and phosphorus and can be used as an energy source and as fertilizer. At the same time, however, it also includes trace contaminants such as heavy metals and organic chemical substances. Therefore we are developing new technologies that use the functions of microorganisms and oxidants or photocatalysts for decontamination and the recovery of useful substances.

My Teaching Philosophy

Civil and construction engineers need a broad range of knowledge of civil infrastructure, such as roads and bridges or water and sewage systems. Among those, in the field of water and sewage systems, I seek to nurture graduates with knowledge of water quality and purification as well as water ecosystem preservation and the effective use of waste.
