B-DASH

“B-DASH” Technology Development Project

B-DASH (Breakthrough by Dynamic Approach in Sewage High Technology Project) is a demonstration project for innovative wastewater system technologies. This demonstration project was launched by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) in 2011, and is aimed at making more efficient use of energy and reducing stock life cycle costs in the wastewater system business by accelerating research and development and the commercialization of new technologies, and at supporting the development of the water business of Japanese companies overseas. Contractors install full-scale plants at wastewater treatment plants to demonstrate cost reductions and reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
In particular, the demonstration projects carried out in fiscal 2011 and 2013 were evaluated for their technical performance and summarized in the "Guidelines for Introducing Innovative Sewage Technology" published by the National Institute for Land and Infrastructure Management.
