First tons of high purity lignin and wood sugars delivered by SWEETWOODS in Imavere, Estonia.

The SWEETWOODS project, funded by the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking, is set to ship out industrially representative samples of high purity lignin and wood sugars. The project aims to demonstrate how pre-treatment technology and enzymatic solutions can produce high-quality feedstocks for biomaterials and biochemicals. The lignin produced in the project has been found to be suitable for use in biocomposite production, while the wood sugars have been used to produce bio-isobutene and renewable cosmetics. The project is also evaluating the environmental and socio-economic performance of the plant and products. The consortium is led by Graanul Biotech and includes partners such as Global Bioenergies and Tecnaro.
