Prototyping emerging bio-based products from lignocellulose by zero-waste pathways

Project description

A boost for bio-based products

In recent years, the threat of climate change has been increasing, fossil resources have been dwindling and their prices increasing. This has initiated a push towards cleaner more reliable production routes. But a problem has arisen, the already existing approach to bio-based production routes are costly and convoluted, which tend to offer little to no improvement over the previous routes. Because of this, a need exists for new better products and easier production routes. The EU-funded PURE project aims to research and introduce a new novel catalytic method for a more ecologically friendly and cost-efficient production of chemical building blocks that find use in a variety of industries.
