＜The Results of Reserch＞
Commonly, the the temperature that Pyrococcus Kodakaraensis to proliferate is about 110 degrees C. But the prototype machine have achieved its temperature of 120 degrees C (Max.)
Although, we have improved the bacteria to provide a fermentation and machinery、these
are not special results but just how long we could put our time into our
reserch project. And also, the operation of the machinery have not been
changed dramatically even though the temperature actually exceeded over
100 degrees C. Reporting our efforts on the written format, we are hoping
that a reader can understand our research easily and without difficulties.
1. Products and Prototypes
2.Development of Pyroccus Kodakaraensis and Fermentation Machinery
1） Other company's perpendicular shape machine
(1)The fermentation temperature between 24hrs and 36hrs with kitchen wastes.
The time period (x-axis) and the temperature of fermentation (y-axis)
<1>As long as we use a any type of machinery, the fermentation temperature
<2>If fermentation temperature is set under 55 degrees C, a putrefaction
is happened, easily.
<3>If fermentation temperature is set over 60 degrees C, a fermentation
proccess is finished within 12 hrs or less hours than it.
(2) The improvement of fermentation bacteria by mixing between 24hrs and
Each time, we recorded the maximum temperature of fermentation, and summurized
its records on the graph with respect to the time period.
<1>Finding out the best living environment of bacteria, we tried mixing
over and over. From these effort, the maximum fermentation temperature
started to increase little by little.
<2>Achieving its temperature 65 degrees C, it took 120 days.
<3>75 degrees C, 180 days.
<4>85 degrees C, 230 days.
2） Our machine that is the lower cone shaped（refered to pictures above）（1997.8.26〜）
(1)Very short time (2hrs), we ahieved to finish the Pyroccucus Kodakaraenois
<1> With improving the bacteria's living condition、fermentation temperature
<2> By the end of 92th day, we succeeded to exceed the highest themperature
of natural compost 80 degrees C.
<3> By the end of 120th day, the highest temperature became 96 degrees C.
<4>Reproducing its highest temperature is possible. It is easy to say that
very stable bacteria could be raised.
<5> During Dec 1997 and April 1999, the machinery, bacteria and process
have not changed. At April 1999, its highest temperature is at 99.7 degrees
