Characterization of hydrochars derived from fish and shrimp wastes using microwave hydrothermal carbonization

Authors: Kannan, Shrikalaa; Gariepy, Yvan; Raghavan, Vijaya
Description: Seafood processing results in large amounts of solid and liquid wastes that are unsustainably dumped into landfills and oceans respectively. Alternative sustainable technologies that completely utilize seafood wastes such as fish and shrimp wastes are needed. Recently, it has been shown that the hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) that converts biomass into hydrochar is suitable not only for lignocellulosic wastes but also for non-lignocellulosic wastes such as fish and shrimp wastes. We produced hydrochar from enzymatically pre-treated fish and shrimp wastes at varying MHTC operating conditions (holding temperature
