Abstract

Carbonization of model garbage under hydrothermal condition was examined, and then compared with dry condition. The char yields obtained from the model garbage using hydrothermal condition were equal to those using dry condition. The yield and its carbon content at 573K, 0h under hydrothermal condition are 43wt% and 68wt% respectively. The heating value of the char was 30MJ/kg at 573K under hydrothermal condition. As it is higher than the obtained char (25MJ/kg) under dry condition, it is suitable for use as a fuel.
