The Termal Hydrolysis Process (THP) Disintegrates cell structure/organic materials and dissolves
naturally occurring cell polymers (a form of protein), into an easily digestible feed for anaerobic digestion.
The resulting less viscous (more fluid) sludge allows for the doubling of digester dry solids (DS) loading,
and for stable operations.
Increases sludge and bio-waste biodegradability and therefore yields more biogas
Better dewatering - up to 40% total dry solids - by releasing water bound in EPS
(Extracellular Polymer Substances, EPS binds 4 - 5 g water / g EPS)
Produces an efficient and pathogen-free fertilizer: Treating the material at 165° C for 20 minutes
meets all known standards and requirements for sterilisation, including EU Animal By
Products Regulation (ABPR, 1774/2002/EC) category II & III materials.
