low molecular weight (LMW) bio-aromatics recovery adsorption/ion exchange
Project description

Lignin represents the most important renewable source for production of LMW bio-aromatics. In this project, the recovery of LMW bio-aromatics from aqueous lignin liquors of the paper and pulp industry and biorefinery is investigated in an economically viable way via click-in adsorption. After selecting the most promising liquors, the selective separation and recovery of LMW bio-aromatics with adsorbents are studied.
