Lystek Thermal Hydrolysis Process commissioned as part of Nutrient Recovery/Reuse Project
Lystek system facilitates recovery of valuable organic matter and nutrients from St. Cloud, Minnesota's wastewater biosolids
Biosolids and organics solutions provider, Lystek International, based out of Cambridge, Ontario, is excited to announce that it has successfully commissioned another installment of its low temperature Thermal Hydrolysis Process (Lystek THP) at the City of St. Cloud, Minnesota, as part of the city's Nutrient Recovery and Reuse (NR2) Project. The model project was partially funded through a Point Source Implementation Grant made possible by the Minnesota Clean Water Legacy Act. The Lystek system is a key component of the project as it facilitates the recovery of valuable organic matter and nutrients from the city's wastewater biosolids to create LysteGro® a high value, Class A quality biofertilizer product that will be utilized in the local, agricultural market.
