HTCycle AG, an IPI company, is one of the global pioneers in the industrial application of the innovative hydrothermal carbonization technology that allows communities and businesses to convert their waste into renewable energy. Thanks to years of long-standing, rigorous research, we have developed a solution that addresses not only the sewage sludge problem, but also generates renewable energy and extracts phosphorus and heavy metals from the HTC coal.
In the last few years, IPI AG took part in a number of large-scale projects such as Project R3Water and Project BioBoost. At the moment, we are heavily involved in the implementation of the Green Carbon Project and Waste2Fuel Project, the former of which aims to further the scientific knowledge, capability, technology and commercial products for biomass-derived carbons and revolutionize the way European countries use sustainable carbon materials. Waste2Fuel Project, on the other hand, is focused on generating valuable materials and products from olive oil residues.
HTCycle AG, former AVA GmbH, has received global recognition for its efforts and outstanding results in the field of hydrothermal carbonization and currently has over 17 patents. It is also the first company to establish an industrial commercial plant with end products like coal, phosphate and activated carbon.
