Somethin’ from just about nothin’: The Digest 2018 Multi-Slide Guide to upgrading biorefinery waste lignin into bioplastics

February 22, 2018 |

You know what they say, “you can make anything you want from lignin except money.”

It’s the most challenging issues in biofuel production: upgrading the lignin-containing biorefineryresidues to fungible bioproducts, in an affordable, effective, scalable way. The US Department of Energy is supporting a project to develop a viable bioprocess to convert biorefinerywaste to bioplastics at less than $5 dollar/Kg. If successful, the technology would overcome a key challenges for biorefinery cost-effectiveness and sustainability and drive down cellulosic biofuels cost toward $3/GGE.

Principal investigator Joshua S. Yuan of Texas A&M and team prepared this illuminating overview of the project’s promise and progress, presented at the DOE Project Peer Review meetings.
