Part of the energy you're releasing by burning it is then used to dry it, whereas with hydrothermal carbonisation, you can take wet waste and, while you need some energy to heat it up a bit, you can use the heat as it decomposes to feed the production process.
The dehydrogenation reactions are concluded at 200 to 270 [degrees]C, the carbonisation yield increases appreciably without restricting the ability of the subsequent graphitisation (Kolar et al.
The overall conclusion of the test is that, while glass still offers the best performance in terms of preventing carbonisation loss, AmGuard[TM] multi-layer PET containers compete very effectively over a six month period.
It is conceivable that this automatic carbonisation technology is applicable to wheat and barley chaff and other crop plant residues.

Objective: The objective of HTC4WASTE is to demonstrate at full scale and in a real market application the technical and commercial excellence of Loritus unique, patented Hydrothermal Carbonisation (HTC) technology as a flexible organic waste recovery technology, suitable for converting organic waste streams into carbon neutral biocoal, carbon sequestering biochar, fertility products, water, and local thermal energy.
