Biomass (lignocellulosic, lipid) and organic waste valorization to high added value fuels, chemicals, monomers, polymers
Utilization of (nano)cellulose as polymer additive; enzymatic/acid hydrolysis of cellulose to glucose for the production of bioethanol or sugar-derived furans, acids, etc.; Utilization of lignin as polymer reactive additive and of derived phenolics, aromatics and cycloalkanes for the production of bio-based resins and biofuels; Fractionation/extraction of microalgae components to isolate lipids, proteins, carotene, etc. and utilization of residual carbohydrate biomass to produce bio-crude and aromatics.
We are changing our website and more information on the current research activities will be available soon. A representative description regarding biomass and organic waste valorization is given below.
Hydrothermal, mild acid and organosolv pretreatment of lignocellulosic biomass for selective separation and recovery of its components (cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin);
