Coordination network for lignin oe standardization, production and applications adapted to market requirements

Objective

Lignin is one of the most abundant renewable raw materials available on earth. Despite of its unique characteristics as a natural product with multiple chemical and biophysical functionalities, this resource is largely under-exploited, because of its image as low quality and low added value material. There is also a complete lack of organised professional co-ordination and communication tools explicitly and exclusively dedicated to lignin market promotion.

As remedy this CA will set up a multi-partner network improving:
1) traditional markets-large quantities but moderate value, "Materials";
2) high value markets ("Bio-chemistry": toxic biocides replacement, health prevention, probiotics and crop cultivation). The main tools are co-ordinated identification of the gaps between the state-of-art and the market needs, promotion of most promising projects and improvement of analytical standards.
