Investigation of the applicability of wetland biomass for producing hydrochar by hydrothermal carbonization and its effectiveness for the adsorption of ammonia

Universität Rostock, 2018

Abstract: The underlying motivation of this work was the use of widespread but underutilized wetland biomass as reed, typha, juncus and carex to be used as substrates for the hydrothermal carbonation (HTC) to produce a variety of high-value carbonaceous materials and to test their suitability as alternative adsorbents for the removal of ammonia in aqueous solution. The results of this work confirmed that it was possible to transform these wetland biomasses into carbonaceous products with a sufficiently high efficiency for ammonia removal in aqueous solution, which could be designed as a filter.
