Veolia builds on the success of its Exelys technology with the launch of a new package plant version: Package Exelys

Posted: Wednesday 29th March 2017

Following the solid success of Veolia's Exelys combined thermal hydrolysis and anaerobic digestion technology, the company is building on this - and spreading its benefits to a new set of customers and applications. Veolia Water Technologies has successfully completed the soft launch of the same technology in the form of a modular and highly-versatile package system.

The new system is now available to the wider market and offers all the benefits of the established Exelys process, combined with a set of well-thought-out features, like a small footprint, making the package system ideally suited to rapid process upgrades, easy retrofits, or urgent installation.

In addition to it being delivered fully pressure and factory tested, the system is designed to be "plug and play". It comes skid mounted, with all connection equipment, and pre-tested to local standards and requirements, meaning minimal commissioning time. The system comes in a range of standard and optimised sizes, up to 12,000TDS/y.

Each of these compact units offers the same benefits as the established Exelys process: low steam consumption (as a result of innovative and integral heat recovery), 25% to 35% less dry solids, 30% to 50% more biogas, no odours, and a pasteurised digestate.

Commenting on the launch of Package Exelys, Mike Froom, Business Development Director at Veolia Water Technologies UK, said: "We think that Package Exelys will bring real benefits to our customers. Our technical experts have worked hard to incorporate all the advantages of the Exelys technology into a compact, modular, plug-and-play package system. We hope this will open up a whole new range of options for customers who need to upgrade existing processes, get more from constrained sites, or simply make their capital programmes work harder."
