AVA GmbH is a technology company active in the field of hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) and has its main location in Innovationspark Vorpommern in Relzow, Germany.
The professional interdisciplinary team of engineers have more than 30 years of experience in HTC technology, management and energy projects. As one of the pioneers in the industrial application of innovative HTC technology, AVA has been offering solutions for the treatment of various biomass since 2009, thanks to long-standing, intensive research and development.
In 2010, AVA became the first company in the world to operate a HTC plant on an industrial scale. In 2017, AVA officially relaunched its second plant for biomass carbonization. The HTC plant in Relzow has demonstrated that the technology works in relevant environments and can be used for commercial exploitation at industrial scale.
AVA has also carried out tests with sewage sludge which have shown satisfactory results. Due to our developments and researches now the waste management companies, waste water treatment plants (WWTP) and other industrial companies can process the waste and water in an eco-friendly way but could also benefit from the outcomes of the hydrothermal carbonization process:
Activated carbon, used in water treatment industry or other fields
Coal, used for energy generation
Fertilizers (including phosphorus), used as soil nutrients
Flocculating agents, used in the water treatment process (esp. WWTP)
All these products with a high value on the market, make this technology profitable and very useful for the industries working under the closed substance cycle waste management principle, in order to conserve natural resources and to ensure environmentally compatible disposal of waste.
Ava GmbH is part of IPI AG.
