International research team develop cost effective method to produce biochemical from biomass

January 1, 2018 |

In Australia, researchers led by the University of Wollongong have developed a cost effective method to turn biomass into xylose and arabinose, furfural and HMF (5-hydroxymethylfurfural). The catalysts employed are recyclable, helping to reduce production costs significantly while resulting in very high yields of five carbon sugars and furfural. There is hope the technology can […]
