Extension of Okinawan SDGs to the world -Small incinerator “Chirimeser"leads healthier environment-

【Abstract】 In addition to the marine plastic waste problem, there are many garbage problems such as secondary infections caused by infectious medical waste such as COVID-19 and waste problems caused by China’s waste import regulations.
Thomas Technical Research Institute aims to solve the modern garbage problem by the small incinerator Chirimeser, and to solve the garbage problem that will become more serious in the future.
The mission of Thomas Institute of Technology is “to contribute to society by improving the environment through technology."
Working with a sense of mission = having a Beruf is important. As a result, I think that this will lead to international cooperation from Okinawa and the SDGs.
Thomas Technical Research Institute is a company that corresponds to 4 items of 8, 9, 11, and 13 out of 17 items of SDGs.
In addition, at the G20 Osaka Summit, it was introduced in the government publicity exhibition space that it was installed in a hospital in Indonesia as a best practice among companies adopted by JICA.
Chirimeser have been introduced into the remote island municipalities of Okinawa, and most of them are used to incinerate drifting trash.
Since it can be incinerated by the Chirimeser owned by the municipalities, it will lead to the promotion of beach cleanup activities.
Overseas, Chilean masers are recognized as solving the garbage problem in remote islands and developing countries, and we believe that it is possible to change the consciousness of the people and the nation to try to solve the garbage problems by using Chirimaser.
In the future, Chirimeser will help solve environmental problems and garbage problems, develop further products so as to lead to the promotion of volunteer activities for solving envirornnental problems, and have a Beruf and work hard on daily work.
