This thirty-six page report, prepared on behalf of IEA Bioenergy - Task 42 Biorefinery, addresses the main bio-based chemicals that could potentially be co-produced with secondary energy carriers in integrated biorefinery facilities.
Biorefining, i.e. the sustainable processing of biomass into a spectrum of marketable bio-based products (chemicals. materials) and bioenergy (fuels, power heat) is generally seen as the optimal strategy to sustainably convert biomass into a portfolio of biomass -derived intermediates and products that will form the base for the future bio-based economy.
The report deals with the current production of bio-based chemicals, chemicals that potentially could be produced from major biorefinery platforms (syngas, biogas, sugars, oils, algae, organic solution, lignin, pyrolysis oil), market growth predictions for the production of bio-based chemicals, economic benefits of co-producing bioenergy and bio-based chemicals, and an overview of commercial and near market bio-based chemicals (C1-C6, Cn).
The purpose of the report is to provide an unbiased, authoritative statement aimed at stakeholders from the agro-sector, industry, SMEs, policy makers, and NGOs.
