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: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
