Demonstration of solvent and resin production from lignocellulosic biomass via the platform chemical levulinic acid
The need to establish economically and environmentally sustainable large-scale systems for the conversion biomass to building blocks for the chemical industry is becoming increasingly urgent regarding climate change and shrinking oil reservoirs. The GreenSolRes demonstrates sustainable use of renewable resources for the manufacturing of bio-chemicals targeting to replace fossil derived chemicals. The successful completion of the GreenSolRes will lead to the establishment of a commercial plant for sustainable production of the versatile platform chemical-levulinic acid and its derivatives, stimulating rapid gain in spectrum and production volume of bio-based consumer products.
