Leipzig HTP-Forum discusses "hydrothermal processes" as a key technology for a biobased economy

With hydrothermal processes (HTP), water-rich, biogenic residues can be converted into liquid, solid or gaseous carbon carriers. The further refined products have a wide application potential. For a bio-based economy, hydrothermal processes thus represent a key technology. At the third Leipzig HTP-Forum, on the 12th/13th of September 2017, the current state of knowledge in this area is going to be intensified and the mutual exchange of experience between research and industry will be promoted. Registration for the event is available at www.dbfz.de/htp.

At the heart of the 3rd HTP-Forum "Technologies for value creation through use of raw materials and as an energy source", the entire range of hydrothermal conversion of biogenic starting materials into solid, liquid and gaseous energy and carbon carriers is again presented this year. Requirements for different starting materials and hydrothermally produced or producible products as well as the treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater and waste by means of hydrothermal processes are the focus of the event as well as an intensive view of the basic conditions (politics, licensing law, market situation, etc.) and the economical, ecological and socio-economical evaluation of HTP.

In a plenum and three thematic sessions ("science", "business" and "international"), a total of twenty experts from Germany and abroad will be presenting current research topics. In addition, there is the possibility to present concrete research results as part of a poster exhibition. At an evening event the day-long discussions can be further deepened and new research contacts can be made. Before the start of the event (12 September 2017, 10:00 am), it is also possible to visit the test beds, laboratories and technical facilities of the DBFZ. A binding registration is requested.

Background:
The HTP-Forum is a series of events organized by the DBFZ, the German Centre for Biomass Research. It is aimed at both institutions and decision-makers from science and research, stakeholders from agricultural, energy and environmental policy, experts from regional and interregional companies, representatives from industry and business, municipal and state institutions as well as academics from university and non-university institutions.

Smart Bioenergy – Innovationen für eine nachhaltige Zukunft 

Das Deutsche Biomasseforschungszentrum arbeitet als zentraler und unabhängiger Vordenker im Bereich der energetischen und stofflichen Biomassenutzung an der Frage, wie die begrenzt verfügbaren Biomasseressourcen nachhaltig und mit höchster Effizienz und Effektivität zum bestehenden und zukünftigen Energiesystem beitragen können. Im Rahmen der Forschungstätigkeit identifiziert, entwickelt, begleitet, evaluiert und demonstriert das DBFZ die vielversprechendsten Anwendungsfelder für Bioenergie und die besonders positiv herausragenden Beispiele gemeinsam mit Partnern aus Forschung, Wirtschaft und Öffentlichkeit. Mit der Arbeit des DBFZ soll das Wissen über die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen einer energetischen und integrierten stofflichen Nutzung nachwachsender Rohstoffe in einer biobasierten Wirtschaft insgesamt erweitert und die herausragende Stellung des Industriestandortes Deutschland in diesem Sektor dauerhaft abgesichert werden – www.dbfz.de.
