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.
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.

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 .

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
