Technoeconomic Assessment of Hydrothermal Liquefaction Oil from Lignin
Lignin is a by-product of the Kraft pulping process and is typically burned for energy within the pulp and paper mill plant. Due to energy efficiency measures in Kraft pulp mills, its availability has recently greatly increased. This surplus lignin provides a readily available feedstock for conversion into a phenolic-rich bio-oil via hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL).
