Abstract

Biorefinery is the sustainable processing of biomass into a spectrum of marketable products and energy. The biomass residues and waste streams from several origins represent important feedstocks that are used to meet the global needs for bioenergy and bio-based products. Sugars, lignin, bio-oils, and syngas are multipurpose platforms for the production of a number of biofuels and bio-based products. Although biofuels are destined to represent the largest biogenic products, the production of other value-added chemicals from bioresources could have important market and social implications, for instance, in terms of revenues and occupations.
