In recent years, extensive experimental research on hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) of sewage sludge has been performed, to study the effects of process conditions on hydrochar characteristics and nutrient, carbon, and energy recovery from sewage sludge. To promote the implementation of HTC, this study assessed HTC (230 °C, 30 min) integration into an advanced centralized biogas plant by analyzing its theoretical effects on the fates of sewage sludge solids, nitrogen, phosphorus, and carbon. The study used the mass and nutrient flows and concentrations obtained from laboratory studies, and the studied biogas plant had an original layout that employed hygienization. HTC integration decreased the solid product volume by up to 56 % and, increased the recovery of ammonium in ammonia water by 33 % and methane by 1.4 %, while increasing the biogas plant energy demand by 4 %. The changes in the nutrient and solids flows and their recovery potentials show the need to consider the rearrangements of the liquid and gas flows in the biogas plant and the re-dimensioning of stripping process.
