Hydrothermal carbonization: a practical waste treatment option?

The project aims to investigate whether Hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) can be a competetive process for degradation of mixed waste streams. Hydrothermal carbonization is a method where a waste or other material is heated in a water solution under pressure to some 200°C and 20 bars. The project deals with a relevant issue for the call and addresses the goal about efficient detoxification of waste in order to enable increased recycling of materials.
