February 28, 2019 – Cambridge ON – For Immediate Release | Lystek International is excited to announce that its low temperature, commercial scale containerized Thermal Hydrolysis Processing units (Lystek Mobile THP®) – a first in the North American biosolids and organics management industry – are ready to serve the needs of the rapidly expanding wastewater treatment optimization and Class A biosolids processing sector. Lystek developed this exciting, new innovation in response to increasing demand for practical resource recovery solutions, particularly from smaller scale wastewater treatment plant operators.  

“Lystek Mobile THP extends the opportunity for a wider range of wastewater treatment facilities to participate in the many benefits of Thermal Hydrolysis with a compact package based on our proven, award-winning technology,” shares Chief Technology Officer, Rick Mosher. “This new technology is part of our plan to continue innovating and providing the market with a range of practical solutions for biosolids and organics management.” 

The Mobile THP units are the company’s smallest commercial system offering to date and operate entirely within two vertically stacked 50’ containers and require minimal, external utilities. They are capable of processing 0.3 dry tons per hour and come complete with dewatering. They capitalize on Lystek’s modular design and extend the proven advantages of the company’s in-plant Thermal Hydrolysis solutions by providing compact, cost effective package capable of rapid implementation. 

Lystek Mobile THP units provide operational flexibility for generators of biosolids with options to;  

  • Produce a federally recognized, Class A quality biofertilizer product; 
  • Optimize the value of anaerobic digester infrastructure through such measures as decreased output volumes to reduce management costs and increased biogas production for subsequent conversion to “green” energy and/or;  
  • Create a cost-effective, alternative source of carbon for Biological Nutrient Removal system

Lystek Mobile THP units are ideal for installation as a permanent solution in smaller scale facilities, especially where a liquid residual, which can be pumped directly to the unit for dewatering and processing, is currently being generated. Further, if the generator has an existing low-solids liquid program with storage constraints, the unit can be leveraged to relieve this stress and extend the utility of these assets due to the significant reduction in volume achieved through the technology. 

The units can be purchased for long-term use or leased to confirm market demand or address challenges requiring time-sensitive solutions, while developing a long-term, full-scale plan.

“Capital remains a primary constraint for many small to medium sized treatment plants who are also tasked with managing ageing infrastructure and the risk of evolving regulations surrounding biosolids management. Lystek Mobile THP offers a complete, proven solution to respond to these changes in a cost effective manner, particularly when a full facility upgrade may be premature or not required,” concludes Mr. Mosher. “We are pleased to be able to offer this as an option.”
