TerraNova® Ultra is installed on sewage treatment plants that require most energy sufficient sludge drying – for example by available waste heat. Is is also suitable to stabilize bio-sludge, thus replacing for example biological anaerobic sludge digestion. Phosphorous recovery can be added as an option to the process.

The TerraNova® Ultra technology will therefore

  • apply Hydrothermal Carbonization to the sludge
  • reduce the sludge amount by smart sludge drying
  • consume 80% less energy than conventional thermal dryers
  •  allow for Phosphorous recovery

TerraNova® Ultra can be integrated with little cost and effort into any sewage treatment system without interfering with the treatment process:

The TerraNova Ultra method has proven itself through numerous scientific studies and many years of continuous operation on many sewage sludge treatment plants of varying size. Its importance as an innovative way to reutilize sewage sludge is also recognized today internationally, where operation of TerraNova energy systems is already agreed upon or planned. The first industrial size TerraNova® Ultra plant is being operated in Jining/China.

The TerraNova® Ultra plants are available in two sizes for upgrading organic sludge:
