Courses In Charge

Sanitary Engineering
The prevention of environmental pollution for symbiosis of industry and humans are discussed. Furthermore, environmental pollutants form the industry and the analysis methods are explained.
Resource Circulation
Resources and wastes are discussed. Furthermore, materials and energies for sustanable development are mainly explained.

Main Research

We work on development of materials for environmental purification, high functional materials and an energy conversation technology using renewable biological resources such as biomass in order to construct the sustainable development with the symbiosis between humans and the environment. Especially, the charcoal obtained by carbonization of biomass have been mainly used as a fuel from the old days, but those also have many functions such as adsorption of chemicals, humidity control, a heat insulator, and electromagnetic shielding effectiveness. However, the use by many people have based on an experience, because many functions of the charcoal have not been resolved by a scientific approach. Our objective is to resolve the function of the charcoal by the scientific approach, and to develop an application for various fields by the use of the function and composition with other materials.

Introduction of Laboratory

In our laboratory, the students will study and research to develop abilities for research of a literature, a planning, action based on a plan, a search of a problem, resolution of the problem, a report or a presentation and communication with others. I want the students of our laboratory to acquire the abilities demanded in society by the study and the research.
