Goyu Eco Works, a Japanese company has been doing a feasibility survey for realizing a recycling society through waste treatment and carbonization in Port Moresby’s Baruni area.
Yesterday (12th of September), the project team conducted a demonstration in Port Moresby, to show its effectiveness and adaptability in the country.
The project team succeeded in setting up the Carbonization Plant in producing charcoal and vinegar from organic wastes of coconut husks, coconut shells, cardboard and betel nuts.
During the event, participants were impressed by the innovative technology to convert waste into valuable stuff and samples of processed charcoal and vinegar were given to all who attended, for livestock and agricultural purposes.
The process proved to be eco-friendly, with very minimal carbon emission, whilst promoting SME in the surrounding communities. The survey will continue with more trials in the next three weeks.
The survey is supported by the National Capital District Commission Waste Management Division and NCD Gender Division.
