Utilisation of wet biomass in the Surselva using the HTC process

The project "Utilisation of wet biomass in Surselva using the HTC process" is being carried out by AlpEnForCe on behalf of the Regiun Surselva. The project includes a feasibility analysis for the utilisation of biomass (green waste, sewage sludge, catering waste) in the Surselva.

The aim would be to recycle the energy-rich biomass produced in the region (closed-loop concept). The approach is to carbonise the biomass using the HTC (hydrothermal carbonisation) process. The resulting biochar could be utilised in the regional district heating networks.
