Leipzig HTP-Forum discusses "hydrothermal processes" as a key technology for a biobased economy

12.07.2017

With hydrothermal processes (HTP), water-rich, biogenic residues can be converted into liquid, solid or gaseous carbon carriers. The further refined products have a wide application potential. For a bio-based economy, hydrothermal processes thus represent a key technology. At the third Leipzig HTP-Forum, on the 12th/13th of September 2017, the current state of knowledge in this area is going to be intensified and the mutual exchange of experience between research and industry will be promoted. Registration for the event is available at www.dbfz.de/htp 

At the heart of the 3rd HTP-Forum "Technologies for value creation through use of raw materials and as an energy source", the entire range of hydrothermal conversion of biogenic starting materials into solid, liquid and gaseous energy and carbon carriers is again presented this year.

Requirements for different starting materials and hydrothermally produced or producible products as well as the treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater and waste by means of hydrothermal processes are the focus of the event as well as an intensive view of the basic conditions (politics, licensing law, market situation, etc.) and the economical, ecological and socio-economical evaluation of HTP.

In a plenum and three thematic sessions ("science", "business" and "international"), a total of twenty experts from Germany and abroad will be presenting current research topics. In addition, there is the possibility to present concrete research results as part of a poster exhibition.

At an evening event the day-long discussions can be further deepened and new research contacts can be made. Before the start of the event (12 September 2017, 10:00 am), it is also possible to visit the test beds, laboratories and technical facilities of the DBFZ. A binding registration is requested.

Background:
The HTP-Forum is a series of events organized by the DBFZ, the German Centre for Biomass Research. It is aimed at both institutions and decision-makers from science and research, stakeholders from agricultural, energy and environmental policy, experts from regional and interregional companies, representatives from industry and business, municipal and state institutions as well as academics from university and non-university institutions.

The event once again summarized:
What: 3rd HTP-Forum "Technologies for value creation through use of
raw materials and as an energy source"
When: 12/13 September 2017
Where: Alte Essigmanufaktur, Paul-Gruner-Straße 44, D-04107 Leipzig
Conference language: German/English (with simultaneous translation)
Costs: 200, - Euro / 110, - Euro (Regular/Student)
Registration: www.dbfz.de/anmeldung

Smart Bioenergy – innovations for a sustainable future
DBFZ, the German Centre for Biomass Research, works as a central and independent thinker in the field of energy and material use of biomass on the question of how the limited available biomass resources can contribute to the existing and future energy system with sustainability and high efficiency. As part of the research the DBFZ identifies, develops, accompanies, evaluates and demonstrates the most promising fields of application for bioenergy and the especially positively outstanding examples together with partners from research, industry and public. With the scientific work of the DBFZ, the knowledge of the possibilities and limitations of energy and integrated material use of renewable raw materials in a biobased economy as a whole should be expanded and the outstanding position of the industrial location Germany in this sector permanently secured – www.dbfz.de .

Im Focus: Magic off the cuff

Moving things with a wave of the hand: thanks to Empa technology this dream could soon become real. A sensor made of piezo-resistive fibers integrated in a wristband measures wrist movements and converts them into electrical signals. This can be used to steer drones or other electronic devices without a remote control.

A wave to the left: the drone moves to the left. A wave to the right: the drone turns right. Clench your hand into a fist and it lands gently on the table. No,...

Im Focus: Breakthrough in spintronics

It's ultra-thin, electrically conducting at the edge and highly insulating within – and all that at room temperature: Physicists from the University of Würzburg have developed a promising new material.

The material class of topological insulators is presently the focus of international solids research. These materials are electrically insulating within,...

Im Focus: Concrete from wood

Researchers from the National Research Programme "Resource Wood" have developed a type of concrete that largely consists of wood. The building material offers the construction industry new possibilities and is based in large part on renewable resources.

Houses can be made of wood, as they were in the past – or of concrete, as they are today. To build for tomorrow, the two building methods are being combined:...

Im Focus: Long duration experiments reach 1,000th day

World's longest running synchrotron light experiment reveals long-term behavior of nuclear waste cement

The first experiment placed on Diamond's Long Duration Experimental (LDE) facility, on beamline I11, has now been in place for 1,000 days. The experiment, led...

Im Focus: Physicists observe individual atomic collisions during diffusion for the first time

In the world of research, diffusion is understood as a process in which tiny particles disperse uniformly throughout a gas or liquid. Although these media are made up of individual particles, diffusion is perceived as a continuous process. So far, the effects of an individual collision between particles – the cornerstone of diffusion – had not been observed. Now, physicists in Kaiserslautern and Erlangen have succeeded in observing the fundamental steps of diffusion by individual atoms in a gas and have provided a theoretical description of this mechanism. The study has been published in the renowned journal Physical Review Letters.

Almost two hundred years ago, the Scottish doctor and researcher Robert Brown observed that particles of pollen quiver as they move through a liquid. Tiny...
