LYSOTHERM® is a unique THP technology that uses tubular heat exchangers and thermal oil, instead of steam or chemicals for the hydrolysis process. ELIQUO designs and manufactures LYSOTHERM® in Germany.
By increasing the volatiles solids reduction (VSR) and improving the dewaterability of digested sludge, the biosolids disposal quantity can be reduced by more than 30%.
Thermal hydrolysis accelerates the conversion of organic matter to biogas. With WAS (waste activated sludge) the biogas production doubles with thermal hydrolysis.
By reducing the required biological retention time (BRT) and the viscosity of the digested sludge, a higher dry solids (DS) load in the digester is possible.
