  • Leader of Working Group 3: Industrial application requirements versus lignin properties
  • Make an inventory of relevant applications in which lignin (derivatives) can be used to substitute fossil-based compounds, and of the required technical specifications
  • Identify promising lignin product-resource combinations, extract structure-property relationships and address “white-spots” in knowledge and technology for further innovation
