Hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) and pyrolysis are two promising thermochemical conversion strategies to valorize agricultural wastes, yet neither process can be implemented alone to sustainably upgrade both wet and dry feedstocks.

Abstract

Hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) and pyrolysis are two promising thermochemical conversion strategies to valorize agricultural wastes, yet neither process can be implemented alone to sustainably upgrade both wet and dry feedstocks. HTC is ideal for wet feedstocks, such as manure, but its solid hydrochars suffer from low surface area and stability. Pyrolysis is well suited to dry agricultural residues, but pyrolysis biochars have low nutrient contents and bio-oils are often highly oxygenated. We propose an integrated process that co-pyrolyzes a nutrient-rich cow manure hydrochar with raw agricultural residues, which effectively reduces the environmental impact of these wastes while producing value-added bioproducts. Biochars produced from the proposed process are more suitable for soil amendments due to their enhancement in bioavailable nutrients and surface area than the manure hydrochars and raw biomass. Co-pyrolysis of blends enriched with cow manure yield oils higher in alkanes and alkenes with fewer oxygenated compounds.
