Two Japanese companies -- Ebara Corp and Fujiash Co -- have tied up to produce and market equipment that processes dioxin, a toxic waste found in incinerator ash. While Ebara will provide the technology, which was originally developed by a German company, Fujiash will provide the capital and production inputs. Ebara agreed upon the alliance to save on capital investment. The equipment burns oxygen-free incinerator ash at 450C to dissolve the dioxin. The first order for the equipment was received from the Saitama Prefecture city of Tokorazawa.
