Abstract:

Facing the challenge of growing demands for food and energy with a simultaneous decrease in arable land, alternative sources have to be focused on. Second-generation, lignocellulosic biorefineries are being established within the European Union to reduce the dependency on fossil resources by biofuel and bioenergy production. But to cover the demand for sustainably produced foods, energy, and nutraceutical products of biorefineries, the biomass supply needs to be diversified and enlarged.Research is refocusing on existing halophytic plants, which thrive in saline environments. The additional extraction of bioactive compoundscan ensures the economic viability of the integrated biorefinery. This review provides an overview of opportunities and challenges faced in the design of integrated halophyte biorefineries, which combine the production of foods and bioenergy with the coproduction of value-added bioactive compounds from lignocellulosic biomass.
