Athos™: oxidation in liquid phase

With less than one-hour retention time in the reactor, the Athos™ process results in:

Protoype unity

  • Continuous and safe oxidation, under continuous mixing;
  • High mineralization (less than 5% organic carbon content in the solid residue);
  • Separation between liquid and mineral phases;
  • Easily biodegradable liquid sidestream.

The heat released by the oxidation reaction is recovered to pre-heat the sludge, with no external energy supply.
