SLUDGE AND BIOMASS: Continuous thermal sludge hydrolysis (Aqualysis)
One of the current challenges in wastewater treatment is to increase sustainability through energy self-sufficiency: having a treatment plant that is capable of producing, on site, all the energy necessary for its operation.
Aqualysis continuous thermal hydrolysis technology generates more energy because it produces more methane in the anaerobic digestion process. It also generates less end waste, thanks to better degradation in the anaerobic digestion and dewatering phase. Aqualysis is notable for its fully continuous operation, the direct heat transfers and the exclusively designed flash system, for greater compactness and efficiency. A higher degree of reliability is also achieved, as bigger loads can be digested, freeing space in the digester and accelerating the process. It is a firm commitment to zero waste.
