There is volcanic soil in each region of Japan with the ability to absorb harmful substances. The effective usage of this soil as a “valuable resource” of Japan would help to address both environmental burdens and economic burdens.


Usage of volcanic soil as environmental purification materials.


●Development of heavy metal absorption immobilization technology 
●Development of absorption and decomposition technology for organic pollution abatement
●Development of salinated soil remediation technology 


The project is continuously constructing a database on Japan’s volcanic soil (evaluating the absorption capabilities per type, including information on place of collection, strata, and constituent minerals).
