Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg opened last Friday in Beijing a new biogas plant, which uses Cambi’s thermal hydrolysis process at the XiaoHongMen wastewater treatment plant. Cambi is building five large plants in Beijing, producing energy from the sewage sludge from more than 20 million people in an environmentally sustainable, yet profitable way.
CAMBI ASA has become the main shareholder in HØST Verdien i Avfall AS by purchasing the shares previously belonging to Aust-Agder Næringsselskap AS and Invest24 AS. Following this transaction, the company is now owned by CAMBI ASA (80%) and Terramarin AS (20%).
We are pleased to announce that The City of Calgary has awarded Cambi a contract for the delivery of two (2) lines of Cambi THP B6-4 reactor systems, including associated ancillaries and services for the treatment of Waste Activated Sludge (WAS) prior to digestion.
Thermal Hydrolysis Procurement
In the first half of 2016 Cambi received a signed contract from MWH Treatment Limited, for the delivery and installation of 3 lines of Cambi THP B6 – 4 reactor system and sludge coolers for cooling of hydrolysed sludge prior to digestion at Minworth STW plant in Birmingham.
There was a time when it was easy to get rid of sludge.
One such disposal route for water companies, especially those serving large urban areas, would be to load countless tons of the stuff onto barges and send it out to the middle of the North Sea where it would be dumped. We live in more enlightened times, of course, and the sea disposal route was closed off for water companies in 1998 by European legislation. The challenge then was to find cleaner and more innovative ways to solve the sludge problem.
The next time you flush in the nation’s capital, you might consider this: You — or, more precisely, whatever you have flushed — will help generate clean energy.
Quoting ingress of WaterWord article:
“One of the world's largest facilities in Davyhulme is proving the importance of thermal hydrolysis technology combined with digestion prior to sludge incineration. Bill Barber, Rick Lancaster and Harald Kleiven discuss reasons for the technology choice and results from an energy study measuring inputs and outputs.”
Quoting George Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and General Manager of the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water):
“We have built the first CAMBI thermal hydrolysis and digester system in North America which also happens to be the largest in the world. The benefits and costs of this project are both enormous: ...”
Cambi will construct a new Thermal Hydrolysis Process (THP) plant in the city of Hengelo, the Netherlands. The Cambi THP sludge pre-treatment will approximately double the capacity of the existing egg-shaped digesters from 9,000 to 18,000 ton sludge per year.
Norway’s Industry Minister Monica Mæland and Minister of Education Thorbjorn Røe Isaksen, visited Cambi´s headquarters in Asker. The ministers wanted to learn about industrial research, higher education, and public support. Cambi used our cases in Washington, Amperverband and Oslo as examples.
Cambi CEO Per Lillebø presented suggestions as to how research and education can improve conditions in Norway.
