Hydrothermal gasification

Hydrothermal gasification represents the highest-temperature hydrothermal process, operating at temperatures of up to ~550 °C, producing a gaseous product rich in hydrogen and/or methane. The process is sometimes referred to as supercritical water gasification, since temperatures exceed the critical point for water, and is thus analogous to supercritical water oxidation which operates in the same supercritical region but employs higher temperatures due to the exothermic nature of the oxidation reactions.

Biosolids vs sewage sludge

Biosolids are usually considered to be the useful fraction of the sewage sludge. They are generally higher in solids concentration and lower in pathogen content, having gone through a stabilisation process such as chemical dosing, digestion and/or drying.
