This process makes it possible to carry out the management and the energy recovery of this waste, avoiding the environmental problems associated with its landfilling and also making it easier to transport, handle and store. The briquettes obtained, show physicochemical characteristics similar to the conventional and they have a high energy density being able to be used as fuel for thermal power plants or industrial boilers. Companies in the waste treatment sector and the furniture industry that are interested in commercial exploitation of this technology through licensing agreements and / or technical cooperation are sought.

Moreover it doesn't cause boiler corrosion. Consequently it improves boiler thermal efficiency and fuel combustion effectiveness. That means lower costs of heating. It also modifies soot to be biodegradable, prevents releasing soot-related pollutions and isn't harmful to human health.

Furthermore, the sintered ceramic substrate guarantees superior adhesion and resistance to fracture under high mechanical loads. The fabricated temperature sensitive diamond surface comprises well adhered ohmic contacts deposited on the backside of the dielectric ceramic substrate. This configuration prevents interaction between the temperature sensitive surface and the surrounding environment which is essential for biochemical devices applications. Furthermore, the planar geometry of the disclosed thermistor maximizes the contact region between the temperature sensitive surface and any solid flat surface on which it is placed. In this way, improved response times are obtained comparing to traditional round shaped thermistors.
