Hydrolysis Production of Low-Mw Bio-oils

Lignin is produced in large quantities as a by-product from the chemical pulping processes in the pulp/paper industry, with annual generation of kraft lignin reaching to 50 million tons worldwide. With the fast depletion of fossil reserves, the renewable and abundant lignocellulosic biomass (wood, sawdust/bark and crop residues, etc.) can be a potential substitute for petroleum for the production of fuels and chemicals.
