El proyecto CATHYCEL, catalizadores para hidrogenación de celulosa y productos lignocelulósicos ha sido presentado por nuestro investigador Alberto Romero y ha ganado la Greenweekend Valladolid 2017. El vídeo explica este concepto de biorrefinería. https://youtu.be/lePesznZO4M
Nowadays, the increasing energy demand, depletion of fossil fuels and global warming issues have motivated our society to look for alternative sources in order to produce energy, fuels and chemicals. In this sense, biomass is one of the most promising alternative carbon source which is renewable and potentially sustainable and thus a high research effort […]
Nowadays, hexitols from the hydrogenation of biomass have achieved a good piece of attention because they are versatile compounds with a wide range of uses. In essence, the conversion of biomass into sugar alcohols with supported metal catalysts is a two-step reaction.
