Fraunhofer IGB is working successfully in numerous (joint) projects funded by German Federal Ministries or by foundations. Here we present a selection of current and completed projects.
Funding: BMBF || Duration: April 2018 – April 2021 || In order to operate biorefineries sustainably and economically, the conversion of lignin into high-quality products is essential. Based on this motivation, the project aims to investigate and scale-up various lignin extraction and depolymerization processes that preserve the structure and functionality of lignin. Thus, novel, previously inaccessible aromatic structures with new functionalities and thus a new performance spectrum will be identified, which can be used in a variety of industrial applications.more info
