In the past, often was the case that researches focused on the biocrude quality produced through hydrothermal liquefaction and its upgrading, but neglected the importance of treating the liquid by-product, hydrothermal liquefaction wastewater (HTL-WW). Yet, this issue was taken into consideration in the Horizon2020 Next Generation Road Fuels project. In this project, treatment of HTL-WW was recognized of high importance in order to rise the economic and environmental value for the hydrothermal liquefaction of sewage sludge. In this webinar Ali Sayegh presents how the combination of several membrane technologies including ultrafiltration and membrane distillation has been able to treat HTL-WW.
