Welcome to AVA GmbH!

AVA GmbH is a company which offers an innovative solution for waste management by using the hydrothermal carbonization technology. The sewage sludge or other residues treated by this technology result into biocoal, thus into a renewable energy source which helps reducing the CO2 emissions.

Ongoing research and development of this technology made AVA GmbH the first company to establish a HTC plant on industrial scale and the first to make possible the phosphorus recovery from biocoal. Hydrothermal carbonization is a process every industry could benefit from and we would be glad to offer this solution to you.

AVA GmbH has its main location in Innovationspark Vorpommern in Murchin, Germany.

Hydrothermal carbonization plant
a solution for residues and biomass
Hydrothermal carbonization is a chemical process for the conversion of organic compounds to structured carbons. The process, which technically imitates the brown coal formation taking place in nature within 50,000 to 50 million years within a few hours, was investigated by Friedrich Bergius and first described in 1913.
additional support for our clients
