Integrate Furfural Production into Pulp or Sugar Mills
Date palm trees produce huge amount of agricultural wastes in the form of dry leaves, stems, pits, seeds etc. (Image: bioenergyconsult.com)
DalinYebo has found palm residues to be a suitable feedstock for furfural production!
There is an amazing variety of products in which furfural naturally occurs or that can be made from furfural and are used in e.g. automotive industry, agriculture, pharma, etc.
Furfural is one of the oldest chemicals made from biomass. It has been commercially made since 1922 and is today recognised as one of the most import biobased chemical building blocks

Blended Biomass allows more Bagasse as Feedstock for Furfural!
Disruption With A Difference
All Biomass is local! It does not makes economic sense to ship it long distances!
