Biomass Waste - A Source of Raw Materials

M. Kunaver, Jasiukaitytė, E. & ČUk, N.
Lignocellulosic (LC) biomass is one of the most abundant natural polymers, and despite its complex composition it can be used as a potential renewable feedstock for polymer synthesis or as a fuel. One of the possible routes to convert the biomass into industrial and commercially viable products is through liquefaction where wood or lignocellulosic materials, such as waste paper, starch, etc. react with phenol or multifunctional alcohols to yield low molecular mass, liquid products that...
