Cambi acquires complementary thermal hydrolysis technologies

Asker, 15 May 2022, 9:00 CET

Cambi has signed a contract with Veolia Water Technologies (VWT) to acquire their thermal hydrolysis process (THP) technologies, registered under trademarks Exelys® and Bio Thelys®.

The acquired technologies may accelerate Cambi’s entry into attractive and potentially large market segments, such as smaller and CAPEX-sensitive wastewater treatment plants and biogas substrates other than wastewater solids and food waste.

“We are very pleased to conclude this transaction with VWT. The deal opens new market opportunities for Cambi and supplements our patent portfolio. It aptly illustrates our commitment to strengthen our position as a world-leading supplier of treatment solutions for wastewater solids and organic wastes in anaerobic digestion projects”, said Eirik Fadnes, Cambi CEO.

Over three decades, Cambi has made significant investments in R&D, defining the THP standard and continuously advancing the technology to meet evolving customer expectations. Cambi THP products are appreciated for high reliability and energy efficiency. The transaction diversifies Cambi’s product portfolio with a reliable continuous THP system and a proven batch THP system.

As part of the agreement, VWT will transfer to Cambi all patents, know-how and trademarks connected to the Exelys and Bio Thelys products. The transaction is effective immediately and will be settled in cash.
