Abstract

Biomass is one of the renewable energy sources of increasing importance. Biomass is believed to be CO2 neutral. The reason for that is the fact that CO2 emitted from combustion of biomass can be reabsorbed by the next generation of plants, and used for their growth. Hydrothermal carbonization (HTC), also called wet torrefaction, is a thermal valorization process, typically performed at 200 °C up to 260 °C, in subcritical water under saturation pressure [1]. Hydrothermal carbonization is also capable of removing a part of inorganic fraction of the biomass [1]–[3]. In general, there are some indications, that thermal valorization of biomass could enhance its properties, with respect to its subsequent pyrolysis [4].
