Hangzhou Shimai Technology's carbonization vehicle deployed in bio-safe handling of ill and dead animals

HANGZHOU, China, Nov. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of the People's Republic China, African swine fever is in the process of being brought under control with measures being put in place to prevent a recurrence or further spreading of remaining pockets of infection. Many scientific research institutions and companies in China are taking various measures to address the challenge. On September 27, 2019, the ministry's Zhejiang branch teamed up with Hangzhou Shimai Technology Co., Ltd. to establish the procedures and protocols for the emergency movement and bio-safe handling and disposal of sick and dead livestock and poultry. Through the ongoing efforts, the spread of the epidemic has been effectively controlled.

Hangzhou Shimai Technology Co., Ltd. is an emerging integrated technological service company dedicated to the protection and maintenance of a safe agricultural environment in China. The company has developed and marketed several core technologies for use in the collection of ailing and dead livestock, bio-safe handling and disposal of the corpses through cracking and carbonization, as well as culling, disinfection and sterilization.

An executive at Shimai explained that, at the core of the solution is the firm's proprietary MR-1000 carbonization vehicle which is used to handle ill and dead livestock and dispose of their corpses in a bio-safe manner. The carbonization vehicle has earned three invention patents, seven patents for various utility models as well as several intellectual property rights, in that the device has natural advantages when it comes to the urgent and biologically-safe handling of diseased animals during the course of a sudden and rapidly moving epidemic. Shimai's carbonization vehicle is drivable, eliminating the dependence on intermediate transportation to reach areas affected by the epidemic, allowing for the handling and disposal of the ailing and dead animals in a timely and flexible manner. The vehicle can undertake the crushing of the animal corpse, primary and secondary incineration, cooling, tail gas purification and discharge, minimizing all effect on the surrounding environment, as well as keeping the labor costs and level of needed investment in check. The solution combines agricultural production with scientifically-based environmental protection to assure the sustainable development of the agricultural economy as well as the harmonious coexistence between human beings and animals.

According to the executive, the solution has been deployed by several local governments in China, playing a significant role in helping the governments in their provision of public safety services, and allowing them to accumulate experience for dealing with similar events in the future. Hangzhou Shimai has also developed several other innovative technologies through partnerships with likeminded companies, including the Shimai pet vehicle (a small incineration vehicle), as well as a refrigeration and transportation vehicle and a washing and disinfection vehicle. The washing and disinfection vehicle not only addresses the subsequent handling and disposal of animals afflicted with African swine fever, but can be used to rapidly respond to and handle biochemical and other environment-damaging events.

We are still observing the role the Shimai carbonization vehicle can play in the follow-up handling of animals affected by African swine fever.
