Back in the black: hydrothermal carbonization of plant material as an efficient chemical process to treat the CO2 problem?

Author affiliations

Abstract

A chemical process, hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) of low value biomass, is discussed as a tool for the sequestration of atmospheric CO2. Via the available biomass, CO2 can be transformed into an efficient deposited form of carbon, i.e. hardly degradable peat or carbonaceous soil.
