Activities in Hydrothermal Liquefaction and Carbonisation in Norway
Elemental composition and phosphorus availability in hydrochars from seaweed and organic waste digestate
By hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) of organic matter, hydrochars are produced which may be applied to soil for carbon sequestration. From substrates of wild seaweed and organic waste digestate, we measured the distribution of solids (hydrochars) and liquids after HTL at 150 and 200°C, 50 bar for 1 h...

Fast hydrothermal liquefaction of native and torrefied wood
The work presented in this paper aimed to examine the effect of heating rate on the bio-crude yield of wood hydrothermal liquefaction. Three different heating methods were developed, resulting in heating rates ranging from 66 °C/min to 179 °C/min. The experiments were conducted using Norway spruce w...
