Production and deploying of high purity lignin and affordable platform chemicals through wood-based sugars

Project description

Wood industry as the future source of biomaterials and biochemicals

Over 90 % of the carbon content of hardwood can be converted into high-value biomaterials and bioproducts. The EU-funded SWEETWOODS flagship project will ensure this by turning wood into high-purity lignin and wood sugars to industrialise innovative biomaterials and bioproducts. Bringing together nine European companies, it will create new industry-changing value chains in which wood (as a sustainable raw material) plays a crucial role. Specifically, the project will demonstrate the production of high-purity lignin and C5 and C6 carbohydrates from hardwood. These carbohydrates will be converted into bio-isobutene and glucosone. Lignin and its novel enzyme upgraded derivatives will be used in biocomposites, insulation panels and polymer compounds intended for injection moulding.
