The last years, acid hydrolysis (AH) process has widely been studied for the production of ethanol and bio-chemicals some of which (levulinic acid or furans) can be used as diesel miscible biofuel. In an EU project (DIBANET) we investigated the development of an AH process for levulinic acid (LA) production from agricultural residues. The objective of the work presented in this paper is to investigate upgrading options for solid acid hydrolysis residues (AHRs) towards production...
