Samenvatting:
The economics of lignocellulosic biorefineries would substantially improve with value-added applications for lignin. Organosolv fractionation processes for lignocellulosic biomass can be a way towards this end. Two organosolv fractionation rpocesses were compared sa aprt of hte UE PF7 BIOCORE project: the CIMV acetic acid / formic acid process and the ethanol organosolv process. It was found that both processes have a clear potential within the field of biorefining. The CIMV process seems more suitable to produce sugars from the hemicellulose fraction, whereas the ethanol organosolv process yields lignin with a higher purity.
