Lignin higher value creation with lower sulfur content
Campaign: What wood you do
This invention deals with the creation of purifying ligno-boost lignin from about 3% sulfur to a <1% low sulfur level lignin. It will be combining an activation step of the lignin to make it susceptible to sulfur reduction, and the sulfur reduction is to a large extent induced by metal-hydrogen catalytic reaction.
sorry ignorant question - why is this useful? I am guessing sulfur is bad. Is it possible to explain this to understand the value this invention can bring or damage it can minimise?
