Cambi signs contract for a new thermal hydrolysis plant in Kansas City, MO

Asker, 22 March 2021, 06:38 CET

Following Cambi’s selection to deliver a thermal hydrolysis system for Kansas City Water’s (KCMO) Blue River Biosolids Facility, as announced in the stock exchange release on 12 February 2021, Cambi Inc. has now been awarded a contract by Goodwin Brothers Construction Co.

Goodwin is teamed with Black & Veatch, the engineer for this design/build project. Black & Veatch has been involved with multiple Cambi projects in North America and the United Kingdom in the past 20 years. This facility will be the first in Missouri to utilise Cambi’s thermal hydrolysis process (CambiTHP®).

The CambiTHP process was selected so the existing digesters would have additional capacity, allowing all solids to be anaerobically digested. This allows the City to shut down existing incinerators that are reaching the end of their useful life. The resulting reduction of energy demand for the treatment of biosolids will decrease the City’s carbon footprint. The biosolids resulting from the process will be pathogen-free and meet the highest quality standards (Class A) under US EPA regulations. 

“This is a landmark project for Cambi in America, introducing a modification of our proven design to allow for continuous operation even during annual inspection; something that was important to KCMO. The new design demonstrates our commitment to continuous innovation, setting the industry standard for thermal hydrolysis. We look forward to working together with Goodwin Brothers, Black & Veatch, and KCMO on this project”, said Eirik Fadnes, Cambi Group CEO.

The new facility will have a capacity of up to 94 tons of dry solids per day. KCMO Water’s YouTube video ( provides more details. The entire project is budgeted at approximately USD 150 million.

Blue River Biosolids Facility is Cambi’s 9th thermal hydrolysis reference in America, strengthening the company’s position as a key player in sustainable biosolids management solutions in the country. 

The thermal hydrolysis plant is scheduled for handover in 2024.
