The physical and che- Hydrochars mical characteristics of products were studied, including proximate analysis, elemental composition, ﬁber Color measurement content, surface area, bulk density, energy yield, color value, combustion activities and pyrolysis kinetics, etc. It Combustion behavior showed that the color of hydrochars turned blacker, greener, and bluer after HTC. The ash, carbon, hydrogen and Kinetics lignin contents showed a good correlation (R > 0.96)
