IEA Bioenergy Webinar – Sustainable Lignin Valorisation

04 Nov, 2021 - 04 Nov, 2021
Location: Online

Good day,

IEA Bioenergy invites you to participate in a free international webinar entitled “Sustainable Lignin Valorisation”.

Lignin is the second most abundant biopolymer of land-based biomass, with a huge potential as a source of many aromatic chemicals and building blocks. Its full exploitation can increase the profitability of many lignocellulosicbiorefineries and produce biobased products. Despite the great potential for biobased materials in several industrial sectors, one main obstacle to the full exploitation is the complex structure of technicalligninsas part of the natural variability of different biomass feedstocks but also processes induced differences.The webinar will provide an in-depth look at opportunities and challenges of lignin exploitation, emerging trends in research and development.

The webinar is based on a recently published report from IEA Bioenergy Task 42 (biorefineries in circular economy) in cooperation with LIGNOCOST entitled, “Sustainable lignin valorization”.

The webinar will be presented by:

  • Isabella De Bari, ENEA, Italy
  • Aristide Giuliano, ENEA, Italy
  • Dimitris Ladakis, Agricultural University of Athens, Greece
  • Heiko Lange, University of Milan-Bicocca, Italy

This webinar will be held onThursday, November 4, 2021 from 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm Central European Time / 10:00 am – 11:30 pm North American Eastern Standard Time / 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm Greenwich Mean Time.
