Features & Benefits

Bio Thelys™ is a flexible and safe solution which produces a pasteurised digestate that is compliant with international standards e.g.: EPA class A (UAS) and ADAS Safe Sludge Matrix (UK)

Bio Thelys™ allows:

  • Reduced digester related investment for new installations
  • Reduced operating costs:

    o Less sludge to remove
    o At existing installations, the digestion capacity can be increased by handling new input.

  • An income which is generated from:

    o Either processing external input through co-digestion
    o Either selling the energy produced by co-generation or producing bio-methane

Bio Thelys™ is a solution that guarantees energy and environmental performance, thanks to:

  • Conversion into "green" electricity via co-generation
  • Bio-methane production (for injection into the network or as fuel)
  • Complete sludge pasteurization
  • Reduced carbon footprint of the facilities
  • Many possibilities for using biogas: with external input (co-digestion), energy self- sufficiency or even a positive energy footprint may be achieved by the plant.

Bio Thelys™ combines with other Veolia sludge treatment processes such as Athos™ (hydrothermal oxidation), Pyrofluid™ (incineration), BioCon™ (thermal drying), Solia™ (solar drying) and completes them to offer even more sustainable solutions.
