Cambi Sets to Open New Hydrolysis Plant, Participate in Climate Ride


A new anaerobic digestion plant opening up in Washington, DC plans to reduce the city’s carbon footprint, and members from that project plant to participate in this year’s Climate Ride.

The new hydrolysis plant, the largest in the world, is set to reduce the city’s carbon footprint by 60,000 tonnes when finished.

The thermal hydrolysis process (THP) plant will treat biosolids and biowastes and help to turn them into biogas.

This process is also seen in 27 other global biogas plants, with the first plant opening in 1996, 16 years ago.

As the plant is in the midst of opening, Washington, DC Design Manager for Cambi, Øystein Hjelm, is participating in the Climate Ride. In case you didn’t know, Climate Ride is a non-profit organization that promotes long bikes rides raising awareness for bicycling as a transportation option and other sustainability issues and solutions.

“I am really looking forward to these 300 miles of bicycling,” Hjelm said in a press release. “Not only the chance to see more of US’s east coast, but also the opportunity to support the environmental cause, and contribute to fulfill Cambi’s vision To Improve The World’s Ecological Balance,” he said.

The ride starts May 19 in New York and ends May 23 in Washington. Cambi will have a webcam on Hjelms helmet so web surfers can track his progress on their website (linked above).

Last year, 25 non-profit organizations received funding totaling $300,031 from the US ride.
