Lignin added value

In order to operate sustainable and economic biorefineries, the conversion of lignin into high-quality products is essential.

Based on this motivation, various processes for the modification and depolymerization of lignin are examined and scaled, which maintain or increase the structure and functionality of lignin. In this way, new, previously inaccessible aromatic structures with new functionalities and thus a new range of services are identified that can be used in a variety of industrial applications.
