Aktor awards contract to Cambi in Athens, Greece

Asker, 10 June 2014

In the second quarter of 2014, Aktor awarded Cambi a contract to install one line of Cambi’s modular Thermal Hydrolysis (CambiTHP™) B6 system at Psyttalia Island Wastewater Treatment Works, Athens, Greece. The system can treat about 50 dry tonnes of biological sludge per day, almost one half of the total biological sludge produced.

Aktor has been awarded a 5-year Operation & Maintenance Contract for Psyttalia Wastewater Treatment Plant and was looking to significantly reduce the energy footprint of the Treatment Works and based their final choice for the Cambi pre-treatment (thermal hydrolysis and steam explosion) system on multiple considerations, including:

  • Improving the dewatering efficiency and reducing the energy need for the existing drying plants;
  • Increasing biogas production from biological sludge.

Overall it will result in a strong reduction in energy consumption and reduced disposal costs.
Cambi is the leading provider of technologies for converting biodegradable material to renewable energy, bio-fertilizer resources, and biofuel, based on Cambi’s patented thermal hydrolysis process (CambiTHP™).
