Liberate Project

Design of an electrochemical plant to demonstrate the commercial opportunities of converting low cost lignin feedstock in high value biosustainable chemicals such as vanillin, antioxidants or polyamide.

More about the project

The idea is to convert lignin (low cost material) in different chemicals (high value and biosustainable) by means electricity in an electrochemical reactor.

What is lignin and where does it come from?

What is lignin and where does it come from?

Lignin is one of the main components of trees or plants, jointly with the cellulose and the hemicellulose. Constituting around 30% of the dry mass of wood, lignin give trees their rigidity but also...
