boosted digestion of biological or mixed sludge – Digelis™ Turbo

boosted digestion of biological or mixed sludge – Digelis™ Turbo
A process producing reusable biogas.

The DigelisTM Turbo is a boosted digestion technology that reduces the sludge quantity by half after dewatering utilizing a preliminary process of thermal hydrolysis of biological or mixed sludge.

Thermal Hydrolysis Process (THP), patented by the Norwegian company CAMBI, disintegrates the cell structure of bacteria into a easily digestible and dewaterable product.
