University of Illinois use HTL to produce fuel from wet biowaste

December 19, 2018 |

In Illinois, University of Illinois researchers report they can convert wet biowaste, such as swine manure and food scraps, into a fuel that can be blended with diesel and that shares diesel’s combustion efficiency and emissions profile. The researchers report the findings in the journal Nature Sustainability. Hydrothermal liquification is a potential solution to this […]

Hydrothermal Processing and Algae to Oil: The Digest’s 2016 Multi-Slide Guide to Reliance Industries

November 1, 2016 |

Reliance Industries has been working on HTL technology for algae conversion to biofuel for last 5 years and recently have started extending their work beyond algae to other feedstock. With its inherent technological advantages over other technologies for treating wet biomass, Reliance says that “HTL has a potential to become a platform technology to treat many […]

University of Kansas algal biomass process yields higher proportions of biochar

February 18, 2013 |

In Kansas, University of Kansas has tested a hydtrothermal liquefaction integrated wastewater algea-to-biocrude process for cultivating algal biomass. The study influenced liquefaction product distribution to yield a higher proportion of biochar, a valuable co-product. “HTL uses subcritical water as the chemical driving force to convert biomass to a carbon-rich biocrude. Using microalgal feedstocks, biocrude yields […]
