The MoU was signed at the India Water Impact Summit 2017 in the presence of Ambassador Kamsvåg. The agreement entails setting up of a pilot solution using Thermal Hydrolysis Process (THP) for wastewater and sludge treatment. Cambi, which is a global leader in waste water treatment and sludge technology, will provide its international know-how in designing a state of the art wastewater plant in the Ganga basin. Cambi’s THP pre-treatment of wastewater is a proven technology worldwide and has been used in large metropolitan cities including London, Washington DC and Beijing. Their technology converts sludge to energy and bio solids.
