SALAZAR, Aníbal. Characterization of the RSU thermal potential, for the generation of electric energy, using hydrothermal carbonization. Ingenius [online]. 2023, n.29, pp.58-65. ISSN 1390-860X.

The zenith of oil and the greenhouse effect are the main reasons why it is necessary to use nonconventional renewable energy (NCRE) sources. Solid urban waste is one of these sources, and the main objective of this research is to determine its main features, including calorific value, as well as the use of modern hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) and hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) procedures for the generation of energy and electrical power. For this purpose, it was used the sampling data of urban solid waste from the metropolitan Chiclayo area. A calorimetric bomb was employed for measuring its calorific value and the electrical generation potential was simulated. In addition, the main objective was fulfilled, and it was also possible to steadily generate energy and power. This will help to avoid greenhouse gas emissions, and thus contribute to meet the commitments signed by Peru to reduce greenhouse gases, and follow the path to a new sustainable energy matrix, while simultaneously providing a potential solution to the problem of managing solid urban waste, which is the main environmental problem of the city of Chiclayo Peru.
