NEGOLIGNINA: New natural products derived from lignin

Negolignina

PROBLEM/OPPORTUNITY

There is a mega-trend, both in society and in the chemical sector itself, that demands greener, more sustainable chemicals, that are not derived from fossil resources (bio-products).

Lignin, as a source of biomass raw material, is one of the four most abundant natural biodegradable polymers on Earth. More than 50 Mt/year are generated annually from this aromatic biopolymer, which is currently destined for energy recovery.
