This book is a compilation of research information obtained under the NF-AIRID (Non-Food Agro-Industrial Research information Dissemination) Network which was established with funding from the AIR programme of DG XII for two years (1995/6). The main objective of the Network was to bring the results of research and demonstration activities funded by the European Commission (EC) to the attention of potential users. As indicated in the project title, the focus was on the non-food use of both stabilised and novel agricultural crops as well as trees, wood an agricultural wastes. The scope covered activities from the farm gate to the final user in all areas, other than direct combustion for heat, or other thermal conversion techniques (gasification, pyrolysis, catalysis, etc). In particular it dealt with properties of raw materials and manufacturing systems related to liquid fuels, bulk chemicals, fertilizers, biopolymers, lubricants, coatings, detergents, fine chemicals, composites, fibre, fabrics, paper and card.
