LIBERATE.

Project Description

LIBERATE will deliver a pilot scale electrochemical plant to demonstrate the commercial opportunities of converting low-cost lignin, extracted from biomass such as wood, in high-value bio-sustainable chemicals. Currently, lignin is being burnt for energy purposes, but LIBERATE aims to change that. The project will extract basic chemicals for the European industry to produce valuable products such as polymers or antioxidants, currently coming from the petrochemical industry.
