Integrated conversion of forest residues into methane and carbonized biobased materials (INFORMAT)

Published: 18 September 2017

FORMAS 2017-2020

The project aims to develop a continuous organosolv pre-treatment of forest biomass (softwood and hardwood) to extract an isolated lignin fraction with high yield and high purity. The carbohydrate fraction from this fractionation will be used for conversion of methane by digestion, while the lignin becomes raw material for the production of carbonized materials (biocarbon, activated carbon and carbon fiber).
