Project: Controlled separation and conversion processes for wood hemicelluloses

Forest industry is going through a major structural change. to mitigate the negative effect of this change, we need to develop resource efficient biorefining concepts for turning wood into high-value products. In this project availability of wood raw material, especially underused wood raw material is evaluated. Furthermore, the purpose is to develop, alternative, techno-economically feasible ways to separate and utilize hemicelluloses.
