A waste-free technology will be necessary to further convert platform chemicals, readily available from biomass. From ChemSusChem, 6 (9), 1631-1635: We show that furfurals, which can be obtained from C5 sugars, can be coupled with terpenes in up to […]

Despite lower furfural sales, combined revenue from downstream products contributed R146.7 million to the operating profit. Even when the sales are down, downstream profits increased year-on-year by 24% as a result of the higher production levels and improved furfural prices. Collectively, all value added by-products (incl. ethanol and lactulose) contributed R146.7 million to the operating profit. Pricing for furfural products has […]

Furfural stops tropical deforestation, which according to Greenpeace, is responsible for approximately 20% of world greenhouse gas emissions. How? Furfuryl alcohol, which is made from bio-renewable furfural, is the main ingredient used for woodmodification processes like kebony, which convert softwoods in looks and properties that are similar to tropical hardwood. Originally designed to replace the toxic CCA […]

C10 and C11 branched alkanes, with low freezing points, are synthesized through the aldol condensation of furfural and methyl isobutyl ketone from lingocellulose, which is then followed by hydrodeoxygenation. These jet-fuel-range alkanes are obtained in high overall yields (≈90 %) under solvent-free conditions. Solvent-Free Synthesis of C10 and C11 Branched Alkanes from Furfural and Methyl Isobutyl […]
