Lignocellulosic Biomass Waste Valorization

About this Research Topic

The scarcity of fossil fuels and the environmental problems associated with their use make necessary the search for other more sustainable and renewable alternatives, with lower carbon footprints, for the production of fuels and/or chemicals of high added value. In this context, biomass is a renewable source of energy, which can be considered an interesting alternative, as it can be transformed into many different products, with various chemical and/or agroindustrial applications, and energy (biofuel). In addition, the use of biomass waste is strongly promoted by the different world legislations due to its abundance and its contribution to reducing CO2 emissions. In fact, lignocellulosic biomass is one of the most promising raw materials for biofuel production, considering its high availability and low price.

The goal of this Research Topic is to highlight all aspects related to the valorization of lignocellulosic waste by thermochemical, biochemical and other techniques such as extraction, recovery, pretreatment, homogeneous and/or heterogeneous conversion, to obtain clean energy, fuels, value-added chemicals and by-products.

We invite the submission of Original Research, Review, Mini Review, Perspective articles on themes including, but not limited to:
• the valorization of lignocellulosic waste by thermochemical, biochemical processes, in order to obtain clean energy, fuels, value-added chemicals and by-products
• extraction, recovery, pretreatment, homogeneous and/or heterogeneous conversion of lignocellulosic waste
• the study of the reaction pathways and/or kinetic modelling
• the techno-economic and environmental evaluation of these processes
• life-cycle assessment of the conversion process.

Keywords: lignocellulosic waste, biomass, valorization, kinetic modelling, LCA
