Biomass Conversion to Biobased Products

Biorefineries have been in existence for many decades, however in recent years a great deal of research and development effort has been undertaken to discover new ways to produce new bio-based products and many more bio-based products that can be used in place of products derived either from fossil origins or natural products that have a large negative environmental impact. This first plenary session of the conference will address two specific projects.

The first project aims to produce cellulose fibres from locally sourced biomass feedstocks such as bio-based wastes, such as wheat straw, as well as seaweed which can be a problem resulting from over intensive agricultural practices. The cellulose fibres would replace cotton fibre which has a very negative environment impact in terms of pesticides utilisation, water demand and land use. Details of the biorefinery process studied within the HEREWEAR project will be given along with testing results of the cellulose fibres produced.

The second biorefinery project to be presented involves the production of a bio-based substitute for fossil-derived asphalt using lignin that in many cases is combusted rather than used in any sort of upgraded form. The CHAPLIN project has reached the stage of building sections of road, in some cases for industrial trials of performance, including techno-economic and life cycle, compared with traditional asphalt roads. Business cases are examined for combination with existing pulp and paper manufacture and for advanced generation biorefineries where higher-value applications for lignin could improve economic performance.
