This talk will be mostly based on [1]. We refine previous results concerning the renewal contact processes and significantly widen the family of interarrival times for which the critical value can be shown to be strictly positive. The result now holds for any spatial dimension $d\ge 1$ and the decreasing failure rate assumption present in [2] is removed, among other improvements. For heavy tailed interarrival times we provide some further description of the processes, including a complete convergence theorem and an examination of how, conditioned on survival, the process can be asymptotically predicted knowing the renewal processes.
