Lignol wins "key biorefining patent" in Canada

June 10, 2011 |

In Canada, Lignol Energy reports they have received confirmation from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office that its first Canadian patent application has been approved.

The patent, entitled “Continuous counter-current organosolv processing of lignocellulosic feedstocks”, is a companion to a US patent issued on December 16, 2008. The Canadian patent is broader in scope and includes process, systems and novel composition of matter claims.

This patent is separate and distinct from the four applications referred to in Lignol’s April press release, and is described by Lignol as a key biorefining patent for the company.
