Bio-based Chemicals: Value Added Products from Biorefineries

Feb 2012

This report was prepared by Task 42: Biorefineries. It address the main bio-based chemicals that potentially could be co-produced with secondary energy carriers in integrated biorefinery facilities. The report deals with the current production of bio-based chemicals, chemicals that potentially could be produced from major biorefinery platforms, market growth predictions for the production of bio-based chemicals, and an overview of commercial and near market bio-based chemicals (C1-C6, Cn).
