A team of researchers from Purdue University's Centre for Direct Catalytic Conversion of Biomass to Biofuels, or C3Bio, has developed a process that uses a chemical catalyst and heat to spur reactions that convert lignin into valuable chemical commodities.
We are able to take lignin : which most bio refineries consider waste to be burned for its heat : and turn it into high: value molecules that have applications in fragrance, flavouring and high: octane jet fuels," said Mahdi Abu: Omar, Professor of Chemical Engineering and associate director of C3Bio, who led the team.
