Recently, yellow sand flies around February till May in the spring and news media often reports the observation result. Before, the observation of yellow sand is a visual check on the ground and we can’t tell whether it is a haze or yellow sand. Now, Lidar system is developed and real time observation in high altitude and wide area becomes possible.

To support the harmless of immovable disposed electrical machinery with a trace of PCB, we developed the movable and automatic heat cleaning system for the first time in Japan. It can be transported and installed at the site where disposed electrical machinery is set up and has safeguards which comply with the guideline by the Ministry of the Environment. It is expected to be used more to make immovable disposed electrical machinery with a trace of PCB harmless based on the regulation in the future.
