Lignin Solvolysis: Upscaling of the Lignin-To-Liquid Conversion Process towards Technical Applicability
Gasson, J.R., Kleinert, M., Barth, T., Forchheim, D., Sahin, E., Kruse, A., Eide, I.
A novel method
of converting lignin and lignin-rich residues by hydro-deoxygenation in a formic
acid/alcohol reaction medium has been further investigated in terms of fuel
properties. Results from upscaling from 5 mL lab scale reactors to a 1 L reactor
show positive results in terms of gas composition and transferability to a
larger scale. Minor changes in the molecular weight distribution are found in
ESI-MS spectra of the products from the two reactors, but the major products are
in both cases within the boiling point range of gasoline and diesel. Fuel
quality parameters also show positive results relative to motor fuel use.
Alternatively, the phenols derived from the lignin structures could be separated
out for usage as bulk chemicals.
