Milton Keynes, UK
Plant capacity and performance:
In November 2006 Black & Veatch (then GleesonLtd.) signed a contract with Cambi AS for a
4-reactor Thermal Hydrolysis plant for the pre-treatment of sludge prior to anaerobic digestion
for Cotton Valley sludge treatment centre.
The centre is located at Milton Keynes Wastewater Treatment Works with a population equivalent
of approx. 288,000 but will also import sludge from a similar population equivalent.
The benefits of the Cambi process are:
• More than doubling throughput of the existing digesters and making capacity for the
Cotton Valley WwTW
