Cambi’s patented Thermal Hydrolysis Process (THP) treats municipal and industrial waste prior to anaerobic digestion. The Cambi process treats the organic matter at 138 -170°C, dissolving it into an easily digestible feed for biogas production by anaerobic digestion, while destroying any harmful organisms (pathogens).
The THP is highly energy-efficient with low operating costs. It also eliminates odour problems associated with the treatment of organic materials. The end product (digestate) – a pathogen free and pasteurised biosolids with miniumum odour – can be applied to land directly as biofertiliser.
