Demonstration of cellulose-based soil additive, Celldron

Prof. Yoshinori FUKUBAYASHI demonstrated the soil stabilization mechanism of the soil additive, celldron. Project counterparts, including personnel from JICA and JST, and Ethiopian counterparts deepened attendees’ knowledge of the soil additive that MNGD aims to produce from local resources.
