Cellulosic Sugars

Chemicals & Polymers from Sugar

Cellulosic resources such as cellulose, hemicellulose and Lignocellulose require more processing to release
and once hydrolyzed contain vast quantities of fermentable sugars
Here are the main products:

ButanolAcrylic Acid
ButylenesAdipic Acid
Butadiene2,5-Furandicsrboxylic Acid
Succinic AcidBTXPTA

There are two main routes to sugar-based Chemicals from Biomass
i) Catalytic - without fermentation > SORBITOL , ISOSORBIDE

ii) Biological - with Fermentation > ETHANOL , CITRIC ACID
    Cellulose Hydrolysis Technologies

Development work is being done in many parts of the world and Commercially viable projects
will materialize in about 5 to 10 ten years time?
