NEWAPP is a research project founded by the European Commission under FP7 program, aiming to develop a new valorization pathway for wet biomass waste streams, such as the organic fraction of municipal waste, sewage sludge or other industrial biodegradable waste like waste from food industry, vegetable or agricultural waste, sludge from waste or wastewater treatment through HTC technology.

The HTC process converts wet biomass waste streams into carbon. Instead of releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the carbon biomass is completely transformed into a peat-like material. This carbon can be employed for instance for energy generation, or as a secondary raw material.

Desired raw materials for the HTC process are, for instance, vegetable material, wood, green pruning, compostable waste, paper, pulp, or similar lignocellulose or cellulose substrates with a water content in the range of 30 to 90%. Other contents should be limited to up to 20%. We have identified sewage sludge as a potentially interesting stream.

We seek your cooperation to characterize this waste stream at European level.

NEWAPP (http://www.newapp-project.eu/) is a research project founded by the European Commission under FP7 program, aiming to develop a new valorisation pathway for biomass waste streams through Hydro Thermal Carbonization (HTC) technology. The HTC process converts wet 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 as a product. The questionnaire seeks to uncover the quantities of biomass generated in households and how this is treated.

This will provide an indication on need for improvements in organic waste treatment and to what extent enough organic waste is generated for the HTC solution to be feasible. To do this we would like you to answer 12 questions, which will be used for assessing the potential for HTC and organic waste treatment. The answers will be used assessing if there is a market for the HTC process and how to optimize HTC to organic waste. The questionnaire will not be used for comparisons of waste management between municipalities and regions.
