Abstract
Enormous quantities of byproduct lignins could be produced from biorefinery processes such as biomass-to-ethanol. Burnning of the lignins to generate electricity is not economical and technically difficult. The development of value-added lignin products will solve this problem and increase both revenue and profit. This project examines certain chemical modification methods aiming at improving specific intrinsic material properties of industrial lignins for formulation into plastics resins.
