ERS system structure and features
How ERS works and features in 5 minutes
ERS system structure
The processing capacity per ERS unit ranges from 0.5 tons to 50 tons and the unit does not emit drain and odors throughout the process.
|Maximum processing weight per day
(in 24-hour operation)
|Body volume (㎥)|
|Body size (m)||Width(W)|
|2 ton/day||4 ton/day||8 ton/day||15 ton/day||25 ton/day|
*Maximum processing weight depends on the type and moisture content of the material to be processed.
ERS utilizes specific microbes collected from the local soil for its fermentation and drying process. 3 types of microbes were specified and deposited to the International Patent Organism Depositary (IPOD) at the National Institute of Technology and Evaluation (NITE), Japan.
These 3 microbes have a symbiotic relationship and deposited as the first-ever symbiotic microbes to the IPOD.

Advantages of use of ERS
High speed fermentation and drying process
Internal pressure of the ERS main body is mechanically reduced to get the boiling temperature down to 50 to 70 ℃. It helps the patented microbes inside ERS to quickly ferment and dry the input waste even with a high water content.
No drain and odor emissions
Drain facilities are no need as moisture from waste is collected and evaporated by microbial deodorization cooling device in ERS system. Ammonical odor from waste is decomposed by specific microbes functioning inside the ERS device in a vacuum environment.
Advancing waste recycling
ERS system converts various kinds of waste into high-quality valuable outputs with uniformly controlled degree of fermentation and moisture content. The outputs can be used as fuel, compost, fertilizer, feed, and livestock litter.
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
The reduction of moisture content and size of waste by ERS process leads the reduction of GHG emissions in incineration when incinerating equipment is used.
No need of pre-segregation
Able to treat mixed waste without segregation work and reduce human sanitary risk. Easy to segregate after treatment by trommel (sieving tool).
No need of replenishing microbes with no bio-hazardous risk
ERS uses specific microbes collected from soil on-site for fermentation and drying process. There is no biological risk to microbial environment where ERS is installed.
No need of moisture adjustment
Adding moisture adjustment agents and taking dewatering process are no need to do as ERS system is good at treating organic waste with a high water content.
The combination of ERS and power generation systems makes in-house use and/or sale of electricity possible.
Advantages of combination use
By using ERS system together with existing facilities (incinerators, methane fermentation facilities, or compost depots), the user will receive various benefits including the reduction of waste treatment cost and environmental burden.
