How does thermal hydrolysis work?

Thermal hydrolysis is a process technology applied in wastewater treatment plants with anaerobic digestion. Thermal hydrolysis exposes sewage sludge or other types of wet organic waste to high temperature and pressure. The process is similar to preparing meals using steam. In the process of thermal hydrolysis, sludge from wastewater and other types of organic waste are exposed to high temperatures and pressures. Most conventional technologies work at 70 ° C, the Cambi process treats organic matter at 165-170 ° C and thus dissolves into a mass easy for digestion, and at the same time destroys dangerous microorganisms. It is a high energy process with low operating costs, takes up less space and solves the problem of odor that occurs in classical treatments of organic matter.
