The Wood-Based Biorefinery: A New Concept for Green Chemicals and Materials
2008 (English)In: PROCEEDINGS OF INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PULPING, PAPERMAKING AND BIOTECHNOLOGY 2008: ICPPB '08, VOL I / [ed] Jin Y; Zhai H; Li Z, NANJING: NANJING FORESTRY UNIV , 2008, 9-15 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The rapid expansion of bioethanol production will, in addition to fermentation of sugar and starch sources, also involve a conversion of lignocellulosic materials. In addition to fermentable hexoses from cellulose and glucomannan, this will result in large amounts of lignin and xylan which can be used as process fuel but also serve as feedstock for chemicals and materials. Modem kraft mills constitute a second source of such products since the energy balance is such that a partial outtake from the black liquor can be permitted. Irrespective of source, lignin and xylan must be further purified/modified in order to acquire properties which make them suitable as feedstock in material systems.
