Entrained flow gasification of biocoal from hydrothermal carbonization
Hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) converts biomass into a coal-like substance, here referred to as biocoal. Beech wood chips are treated hydrothermally at 210 degrees C for 3 h in a 250 L pilot scale reactor. The carbon content (daf) thereby increases from 48 wt.
