LIGNOCELLULOSE REFINING

 

The separation without degradation of the components of the lignocellulosic biomass, described in the work of Prof. Dr. Michel Delmas opened up new horizons for cellulose, hemicelluloses and lignin.

 

With its experience in the field of biomass refining, BioEB implements its LEEBIO™ process in order to produce, among others, Green Hydrogen at the same price as gray Hydrogen or even synthetic fuels (SynFuel) equivalent to those used in our cars, trucks, boats, planes, etc.

 

All from the atmospheric and renewable carbon captured by biomass without limitation.

CELLULOSE

HEMICELLULOSES

LIGNIN

Cellulose is the world’s production resource for paper pulp. It is also a non-food source of Glucose

 

With the LEEBIO™ process, cellulose becomes an inexhaustible and innovative source of syngas that can be transformed into Green Hydrogen or Synthetic Fuel (SynFuel)

Hemicelluloses are extracted in the form of active molasses for the tanning of vegetable proteins in animal feed

 

The hemicelluloses resulting from the LEEBIO™ process are a non-food source of C5 sugars to produce furan derivatives such as: Xylose, Xylitol, Mannose, furfural, furfuryl alcohol, etc.

Lignin is a non-sulfur phenolic biopolymer which has exceptional qualities subject to being extracted without modification

 

The lignin extracted by the LEEBIO™ process can replace phenols and polyols in the wood glue industry, or polyurethane foam, but also be a precursor of low-cost carbon fibers.

All products from the LEEBIO process are extracted under exceptional ecological, economic and environmental conditions.

The origin of the process comes from an observation published in 2001 in the article

Formic acid pulping of Rice Straw

In the current energy and environmental context, the LEEBIO™ process allows

 

LIGNOCELLULOSIC BIOMASS

 

to become

 

THE UNIVERSAL ENERGY RESOURCE

 

which will eventually replace fossil resources
