The amount of damage caused to crops by wild birds and beasts still remains high, and against this background, hunting has been actively carried out in recent years for the purpose of preventing damage. In particular, the number of wild boars and deer captured has increased significantly. According to statistics from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, the number of captured wild boars reached 640,000 and the number of deer captured reached 600,000 in 2019. increase.
A related problem is the disposal of captured prey. Most of the captured game is buried or incinerated at public facilities, but there are many problems such as contamination from the lead contained in gun bullets and the burden of public processing costs.
Therefore, instead of disposing of the captured prey, it is required to use the captured birds and animals as local resources (game meat, etc.). The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has set a target of about 4,000 tons of gibier used in FY2019, and the amount of gibier used at 667 processing facilities nationwide in FY2019 is about half of the target. reached 2,008 tons.
However, the current situation is that there are also issues regarding processing facility requirements. In order to utilize wild birds and animals as gibier, it is necessary to incinerate the parts (residues) that cannot be used in addition to hygienic dismantling (trimming).
In the case of large-scale incineration facilities that are environmentally friendly, such as dioxin, both installation and management costs a lot. Therefore, what is required for game processing facilities is an environmentally friendly, safe and economical small incinerator.
Features of small incinerator GIBIER FIRE
The GIBIER FIRE, a small incinerator provided by NTTPC Communications of the NTT Group, was born to solve the above problems.
Significant reduction in residue processing costs
In the case of dismantling facilities without incineration facilities, the resulting residue must be collected and disposed of by an industrial waste disposal company. In that case, depending on the disposal amount, it will cost several million yen per year.
Gibier fire is characterized by burning using animal fat and firewood, except for using a small amount of kerosene when igniting. Since it is possible to add additional residue, it can be burned efficiently. An example of the running cost is as follows, and it is possible to significantly reduce the running cost compared to the request to the industrial waste disposal company mentioned above.
Other reasons why Gibier Fire is attracting attention include the following features.
Small incinerators that do not require notification
Installation of an incinerator requires notification in principle according to related laws and regulations, but Gibier Fire is designed with processing capacity and area that do not require notification, and can be installed without notification in principle. By not being subject to various laws and regulations, there is no need to measure dioxins once a year or to measure exhaust gas twice a year.
By burning at high temperatures of 800°C or higher, dioxins are decomposed and smoke and odors are less likely to be emitted. When our staff actually observed the operation status in Nishimera Village, Miyazaki Prefecture, they were very surprised to find that they could hardly smell it.
In addition, by not burying waste in the mountains, the burden on hunters is reduced, and there is no need to worry about digging up or soil contamination by wild birds and animals.
Outstanding durability and safety
The inside of the furnace has a special refractory structure that boasts a durability of more than 10 years if used properly. In addition, the heat insulation effect is excellent, and there is almost no heat radiation outside the furnace, so it can be used safely.
Let's stop, leave the residue.
The Wildlife Protection and Management Law stipulates that, in principle, captured wildlife should be taken home, and it is prohibited to leave or bury them in the place where they were captured or in the mountains. * If it is difficult to deal with the terrain or weather, burial is permitted as an exception, but appropriate burial must be done in consideration of digging up.
Without proper burial, odor generation will attract various animals. Especially in areas where bears inhabit, the possibility of contact increases due to lure, and there is concern that it may develop into an accident resulting in injury or death. In addition, the odor may make the prey wary and difficult to catch (as a side note, in the case of box traps, plywood is often laid inside and replaced every time).
There are various other possibilities such as the outbreak of pathogenic bacteria and the impact on the ecosystem, so it is necessary to properly handle it, but unfortunately some hunters are left unattended, and in many areas The problem is the current situation.
Currently, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries is actively promoting the use of gibier, such as providing subsidies. As of the first year of Reiwa, there are 667 disposal facilities nationwide, but by introducing small incinerators, we believe that it is necessary to increase the amount of waste that can be processed and the amount that can be accepted, and to improve the awareness of bringing in waste. thinks.
For those who are considering introducing Gibier Fire
It is possible to introduce using the bird and beast damage prevention comprehensive measures grant. For details, please check the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries website .
In addition, when local governments plan to introduce the system, if the target area is a depopulated area, there are cases where it is possible to purchase at a real burden of about 15% by using the depopulation countermeasure business bond in combination with the subsidy. I have.
Based on our track record of installation in 26 prefectures nationwide, NTTPC Communications can make comprehensive proposals through our company. Please feel free to contact us using this form.
