The goal of CarboREM is to design and build industrial plants for the recovery of organic waste and residual wet biomass through an innovative process of exploitation of wet organic waste (eg sewage sludge, organic fraction of municipal solid waste, agricultural, agro-industrial and zootechnical residues) called hydrothermal conversion. This process transforms the waste into a solid carbon material, the hydrochar, which can be used:

1) as a biofuel for the production of energy;

2) as soil improver;

3) as Advanced Carbon Material, in particular as an adsorbent of pollutants in water and gas.
