Objectives and work program

  • Production of levulinic acid (LVA) from non-food lignocellulosic biomass in a demo-plant
  • Conversion of LVA to γ-valerolactone (GVL), 1-methyl-1,4-butanediol (MeBDO) and 2-methyltetrahydrofuran (2-MTHF)
  • Catalyst recycling and purge strategies for high recovery and process productivity
  • Generation of all data required for engineering of first commercial LVA-solvent plant
  • Development of biobased derivatives for industrial and consumer adhesives
  • Life cycle analyses (LCA) and environmental impact analyses (EIA) to evaluate the performance of the biomass based derivatives
