Abstract

Hydrothermal carbonization is an exothermal process that lowers both the oxygen and hydrogen content of the feed by dehydration and decarboxylation. This is achieved by applying temperatures of 160–200oC in a suspension of biomass in water at saturated pressure for several hours. The objectives of the study were to carbonize the IW by the way of hydrothermal treatment process and produce a solid coal like product for application of energetic purposes. For carrying the carbonization experiment, the prototype HTC reactor has been fabricated. Organic fractions of IW collected were characterized. From the results, it was found that carbon content, energy potential can be increased by the treatment of hydrothermal carbonization in achieving carbonization of the IW.
