Bio aromatics derived from lignin

Aromatic compounds are so easily extracted from (fossil-based) naphtha, that bio aromatics seemed to be science fiction. The reason: lignin, the most probable resource, was hard to handle. Green chemistry knowledge advances so fast that research groups like Dutch / Flemish Biorizon (TNO, VITO and Green Chemistry Campus) provide the possibility to commercially produce Bio aromatics from lignin in less than ten years. The countdown towards bio-revolution has started. Continue reading Bio aromatics derived from lignin
