SunCoal Industries GmbH

SunCoal Industries GmbH

Nature invented the process of carbonization in which carbon products like coal or oil were formed over millions of years by applying pressure and time to biomass. In 2007 SunCoal invented its patented hydrothermal carbonization technology in which synthetic, tailor-made and sustainable high-value carbon products can be produced from biomass within a few hours. Nowadays, SunCoal develops and commercializes its hydrothermal treatment technology for the production of technical carbons, bio-based platform chemicals and biofuels in close cooperation with its customers and partners. In addition, SunCoal offers an innovative technical solution for the dewatering of organic sludges.
