Combined Hydrothermal Liquefaction of Polyurethane and Lignocellulosic Biomass for Improved Carbon Recovery
Due to the high versatility of Polyurethane (PUR), its share amongst synthetic polymers to manufacture consumer goods is increasing. This study proposes, tests and validates through pilot processing
An In-Depth Process Model for FUEL Production via Hydrothermal Liquefaction and Catalytic Hydrotreating
One of the more promising technologies for future renewable fuel production from biomass is hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL). Although enormous progress in the context of continuous experiments on


How Do Hydrothermal Liquefaction Conditions and Feedstock Type Influence Product Distribution and Elemental Composition?
We investigated the effects of temperature (250-350 ˚C), reaction time (5-31 min), and solid loading (5-25 wt.%) on hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) of Spirulina, Miscanthus, and primary sewage sludge
Pharmaceutical residues in sewage sludge: effect of sanitization and anaerobic digestion.
A new treatment of sewage sludge by direct thermochemical liquefaction
As one economical solution to the sludge disposal problem, the thermo-chemical conversion of sewage sludge to heavy oil was studied. In order to investigate optimum starting materials and catalyst
Continuous Hydrothermal Liquefaction of Biomass in a Novel Pilot Plant with Heat Recovery and Hydraulic Oscillation
Hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) is regarded as a promising technology for the production of biofuels from biomass and wastes. As such, there is a drive towards continuous-flow processing systems to
