Furfural (58.6% yield) and cellulose-enriched residue (>90% glucan recovered) are coproduced with 89.3% glucose yield in a MTHF/aqueous AlCl3 system. (Image: pubs.acs.org)
Coproduction of Furfural and Easily Hydrolyzable Residue from Sugar Cane Bagasse in the MTHF/Aqueous Biphasic System:
Waterproof Concrete: Furfural-based binder offers low-cost surface protection solutions.
Surface protection in irrigation and drainage construction, for galvanic, chemical and other special structure, etc.
The recent decline of crude oil prices during 2015 forward has hampered the growth of bioplastics, yet the remarkable technology achievements in biochemical building blocks of the past two decades will continue strong during this transition period. (Image: omnexus.specialchem.com).
With declining oil prices bioplastics will experience increased competition from fossil fuel based, volume plastics …

A large variety of biomass was tested for its handling and processing characteristics
Multiple market applications are being targeted that broadens the horizon further for bio-based materials.
Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.
PET Water Bottles – Soon to be made from Corncobs?
All you need is a Cob and CO2 to make Plastic Bottles.
Independent analysts seem to agree with DalinYebo’s view on the furfural market.
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
