Processum, Hydrothermal Carbonisation
Hydrothermal carbonisation (HTC) is a technology aimed towards conversion of biomass at elevated temperature and pressure in the presence of water. The resulting product can e.g. be activated to obtain active coal. The HTC pilot system has a temperature and pressure capacity of up to 230 °C and 30 bar, respectively. HTC trials can be performed in continuous mode up to one m3 a day.
