Tailored isolation of cellulose from hardwood and other plants for conversion to 2G sugar

Reference number
Coordinator INNVENTIA AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 5 000
Project duration December 2016 - June 2017
Status Completed
Venture BIO Innovation - strategiska projekt
Call Pre-studies to develop new "Innovation Projects" within BioInnovation

Purpose and goal

A study has been performed regarding the development of an efficient, large-scale, commercially viable process for isolation of cellulose from wood and other plant materials, with focus on hardwoods, such as birch, poplar and aspen, and possibly other common bioresidues (e.g. saw dust or straw) for further conversion to 2G sugar. The project did not lead to an application to Bioinnovation.

Expected results and effects

The project has generated know ledge and innovation ideas for how the isolation step influences the structure of the hardwood cellulose and its properties important for further processing. This contributes to the convertion of traditional pulp mills into modern biorefineries.

Planned approach and implementation

The project have been executed according to plan. Unfortunately, the interest was not meet by the identified collaboration partners.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
