Call for Papers & Posters

We highly appreciate the numerous submissions to participate in the 2nd International Symposium on Hydrothermal Carbonization: Hydrothermal carbonization as a building block for a sustainable bioeconomy.

The abstract submission deadline expired on November 30th at 12:00 midnight CET, 2018.

Topics covered in the symposium include, but are not limited to:

  • Material and energetic use of HTC-products, ranging from adsorption, remediation, and nutrient recovery to solid and liquid fuel precursors as well as the use in biogas production,
  • Fundamental insights into the HTC-process itself, ranging from kinetic and thermodynamic modeling to advanced product characterization,
  • Innovative applications of HTC-technology in diverse process chains in agricultural, environmental, industrial, or energy sectors, ranging from modern biorefineries to disinfection or recycling of biogenic residues,
  • State-of-the-art in upscaling and commercialization, including the economic and legal framework of HTC-technology and its products worldwide.

An independent board of reviewers judged all of the submitted abstracts based on originality and quality. A first program draft can be found in the pull-down menu to the left.
