14.-16. Mai 2019: 2. Internationales Symposium zur hydrothermalen Karbonisierung, Berlin
Unter dem Titel "Hydrothermale Karbonisierung als Baustein für eine nachhaltige Bioökonomie" findet das 2. Internationale Symposium zur hydrothermalen Karbonisierung vom 14.-16. Mai in Berlin statt. Die Veranstaltung wird vom DBFZ Deutsches Biomasseforschungszentrum gemeinnützige GmbH (Leipzig) organisiert. Das ATB unterstützt die Tagung.
Hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) is a promising technology to convert biogenic residues (agricultural residues, industrial and municipal wastes) to innovative material, energy, or environmental products. Its chemistry offers a huge potential to tune and control the product properties on demand and produce designer carbon materials for a variety of applications from environmental sorbents, innovative energy storage, to soil amendments. The liquid phase obtained during hydrothermal treatment contains a valuable source of chemicals, carbon quantum dots or can be upgraded to fuel precursors.
This symposium will review recent developments, driven by both fundamental research and applied technology. Researchers from diverse disciplines ranging from chemists, material and chemical engineers, to agricultural and soil scientists are invited to submit papers. Companies in solid waste, wastewater treatment, as well as those in the agricultural and energy industries with feasibility studies or full-scale technological applications are also invited to present their experiences. The symposium will offer a platform for discussions across disciplines and between researchers and practitioners.
