CambiTHP™

Cambi’s patented Thermal Hydrolysis Process (CambiTHP™) is a proven and reliable technology that has been used around the world since 1995. CambiTHP™ has been implemented in existing and “green field” projects designed to reduce disposal quantities and the cost of building and operating digesters. The process system is build as a plug and play module that is compatible with small, medium and large scale waste water treatment plants.

CambiTHP™ is a high-pressure steam pre-treatment for anaerobic digestion of municipal. Applying CambiTHP™ technology results in: 

  • 2-3 times increased digester loading
  • Increased biogas production
  • Pathogen-free and stabilized biosolids product with increased cake dewaterability

The production and quality of the resultant bio solids save transport and energy costs as well - the end product can be applied directly to agricultural processes or composted or dried for use as fertilizer or bio-fuel. In addition to optimizing energy-efficiency and lowering operating costs, CambiTHP™ also eliminates odour problems associated with the treatment of organic materials.

CambiTHP™ can be combined with cogeneration plants, which produce green electricity and provide hot steam for the Thermal Hydrolysis Process. Resultant biogas can also be cleaned for use as vehicle fuel or as a replacement for natural gas.

 

Cambi offers a variety of products and services from our core CambiTHP™ technology to complete turnkey digestion plants. We also possess the skills and expertise to oversee plant operations and maintenance (Cambi Service & Operations). Our CambiTHP™ plants normally treat sludge from wastewater treatment plants for populations over 100,000 people, or over

3,000 metric tons/year of sludge. CambiTHP™ enhanced sludge treatment maximises both flexibility and profitability.

CambiTHP™ ADVANTAGES
  • Increased sludge bio-degradability and therefore more biogas production.
  • Significant sludge cake volume reduction.
  • Higher digestion rate and 8 – 12% dry solids feed to digestion increases digester capacity two to three times.
  • Stable and reliable digester operation.
  • Highly energy-efficient process.
  • Eliminates foaming problems caused by filamentous bacteria (Nocardia, etc).
  • Sludge dewaterability improved up to 40% dry solids.
  • Pasteurized cake: Guarantee of pathogen kill (class A bio solids) with no regrowth or reactivation of bacteria.
  • Proven process: CambiTHP™ has been used in projects around the world since being launched in 1995 to reduce both disposal quantities and the cost of building and operating digesters.
