Abstract

Recently the lack of final wastes incinerators owned by local governments has been afraid due to the increase of wastes in the future in Japan. The new surface-treating place, which is considered as the final place to disposal the wastes in Tokyo Bay, will overflow 30 years later if the pace of increasing the wastes is maintained.
