11 February

The consortium is warmly inviting you to the final conference of the NEWAPP project!

The final conference will present the NEWAPP project and its outcomes to a broad audience.

The NEWAPP project is a research project that is co-founded by the European Commission under the FP7 program. The project aims at developing a new valorization pathway for biomass waste streams through Hydro Thermal Carbonization (HTC) technology.

The HTC process converts Biomass waste streams into carbon. Instead of releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the carbon biomass is transformed into a peat-like material, which can be used to develop new products of industrial interest such as fuel, activated carbons for water treatment, soil remediation, carbon sequestration schemes and other applications.

This event is free of charge and open to all.

17 November

The Spanish TV Station UPV Radiotelevisió featured a workshop of Ingelia and the Instituto de Tecnología Química of the University of Valencia.

"With the present economic crisis, it is important for the industry to invest further in the development of renewable energies. The collaboration between the company Ingelia from Valencia and the Instituto de Tecnología Química of the University of Valencia."

15 October

NEWAPP was presented at the World Bioenergy Conference 2014, held in Jönköping, Sweden, on the 3-5th June 2014, with the presentation titled “New technological applications for wet biomass streams through HTC”, by Lucía Doyle from ttz Bremerhaven.

14 October

NEWAPP presented at the European Biomass conference and exhibition, 24th June 2014 at the Congress Center Hamburg. The poster” NEWAPP: New Technological Applications for Wet Biomass Stream Products“ was presented at the most important biomass conference of the year, with Andrea Salimbeni as Project Coordinator (EUBIA) and Lucía Doyle as scientific coordinator (ttz). In addition to this, a specific session about NEWAPP project was hosted at the EUBIA stand of the conference.

14 October

NEWAPP will be presented at the SETAC LCA Case Study Symposium, to be held in 24-26 November 2014 in Novi Sad, Serbia , with the abstracts titled “Environmental life cycle assessment of hydrochar application to soil as a potential carbon storage technology” and “Assessing the environmental impacts of hydrochar for electricity generation”, presented by DTU

 The SETAC LCA Case Study symposium’s “main purpose is to develop an intensive discussion on how LCA can contribute to innovation and enhance the (re)design of new and existing products and services, by respecting eco-design principles”. The LCA case study symposia are organized annually; in 2012 DTU was hosting and organizing, reaching around 220 participants from around the world. Similar number of participants is expected this year in Serbia. The symposium’s website is here.

09 October

NEWAPP will be presented at the NorLCA Symposium, to be held on the 2 – 3 October 2014 in Reykjavik, Iceland, with the abstracts titled “Environmental life cycle assessment of hydrochar application to soil as a potential carbon storage technology” and “Assessing the environmental impacts of hydrochar for electricity generation”, presented by DTU.

Nordic Life Cycle Association, NorLCA was founded in 2004 with support of the Nordic Council of Ministers with the vision of “creating a platform to promote the cross-fertilization of the life-cycle thinking philosophy between academia, industry and the public sector”. NorLCA symposia are organized approximately biannually. DTU is a co-organizer this year; a total of 30 abstracts will be presented in the form of oral presentations mainly from European countries.

10 December

A new research project supported by the European Union with the intention to find new applications for wet biomass waste materials has successfully been started. Eight project-partners from four different EU-countries are going to work together on the “NEWAPP”-project for the next 30 months. The project focusses on the application of the HTC process with which wet biomass waste can be transformed into coal-like products.
