EC Projects on Torrefaction and Biocoal
The NEWAPP "New technological applications for wet biomass waste stream products" project, supported by FP7, aims to develop hydrothermal carbonization HTC processes to convert wet biomass into biocoal at 'moderate' temperatures and pressures in the presence of water. The process also yields a water phase rich in plant nutrients.
FP7 Project SECTOR - Production of Solid Sustainable Energy Carriers from Biomass by Means of Torrefaction started in 2012 and runs for 42 months. The final project meeting is in Leipzig on 6-7 May 2015.
