Hemicelluloses and Lignin in Biorefineries

Hemicelluloses and Lignin in Biorefineries

Forthcoming

Jean-Luc Wertz, Aurore Richel, Magali Deleu, Severine Coppée
November 02, 2017

This book discusses hemicelluloses and lignin, which are generated in lignocellulosic biorefineries. These biorefineries use lignocellulosic biomass as feedstock. Their viability lies in the coproduction of high-value chemicals from hemicellulose and lignin components of the biomass. This book...
