Valorisation of lignin and other side-streams to increase efficiency of biorefineries and increase sustainability of the whole value chain

Programme: Horizon2020
Deadline: 2016-09-08
Tags: Energy


Demonstrate the techno-economic viability of the efficient valorisation of lignin-rich side-streams from biorefineries or from black liquor streams from the pulp and paper industries. Besides lignin, other streams – such as crystalline cellulose, complex polymers and dead cells from the different stages of biorefineries and soaps, terpenes and sulphur compounds from pulp and paper mills – could be addressed.
