Abstract

original image

Carbonaceous microspheres dispersed in water are produced from biomass waste by hydrothermal carbonization and used as fuel in an indirect carbon fuel cell (ICFC). Thus, a chemical pathway to an environment-friendly energy storage medium with zero emission balance regarding greenhouse gases is presented.
