KYOTO UNIVERSITY, FACULTY OF AGRICULTURE
Although the laboratory at the Faculty of Agriculture tests the biodegradability of materials, it appears that most of its products are prepared with an emphasis on incineration as the final disposal method. The laboratory's focus seems to be on the reduction of ash through the use of natural materials.
- Kyoto University is studying novel applications for wood derivative and cellulose derivative products.
- The university has an interest in biodegradation, but its emphasis is on ash reduction during incineration.
- Kyoto University is studying biodegradable polymers from renewable resources used in blends with synthetic polymers to reduce incineration residues.
