Improvement of Wet Base Biomass Characteristics Via the Hydrothermal Carbonisation Process

S.S. Jamari & J.R. Howse
Wet base biomass can be converted through a hydrothermal carbonisation (HTC) process to acquire better characteristics and a more profitable product. Two type of biomass will be use in this research; wood chips (WC) and palm oil empty fruit bunch (EFB). A purpose built pressure vessel was used in the presence of excess water throughout the process. The process was carried out at low temperature (180 – 220oC) and saturated water pressure. The chemical and...
