Lignocellulose for Future Bioeconomy discusses the conversion and utilization of lignocellulosic biomass. This book focuses on the utilization of lignocelluloses for various products, including biopolymers, bionanomaterials and bioproducts. Recent findings in scientific investigation, engineering, product development, economic and lifecycle analysis are discussed, as are current synthesis technologies and potential applications. The book progresses from a discussion of the potential sources of biomass, to the refinement and processing of materials. A sampling of various sustainability issues faced by industries in their production methods and a look at real world examples of the use of lignocellulose-based materials in the bioeconomy round out the discussion.

Key Features

  • Presents information on lignocellulosic biomass management and its utilization for the production of bioproducts, biopolymers and bionanomaterials
  • Highlights the applications of advanced materials developed from lignocellulosic biomass and their contribution towards future bioeconomy
  • Discusses the lifecycle of lignocellulosic biomass


Academia, researchers, students, industries, policy makers and the public in the areas of materials science, energy, chemistry, biotechnology
