Abstract [en]

Chemical pulp mills such as Kraft, soda, or sulfite mills are current examples of biorefineries that can convert lignocellulosic biomass into energy, pulp or cellulose derivatives, and tall oil.  While existing viscose pulps use a hemicellulose extraction to generate soluble sugars for ethanol production, in general there still exists a large potential for other more profitable applications of the biomass (Fig. 1), i.e. the mill needs to present a widespread product portfolio.  The biofuels under development from fermentation that will be discussed are the diesel fuel oxygenates dibutyl succinate and diethyl succinate to be used for reduced particulate emissions and fossil fuel replacement for diesel engines and butanol for Otto engines.  It's important to stress that succinic acid, butanol and ethanol, needed for the production of the diesel additives and gasoline replacement will be produced from renewable resources and hence replacing products currently produced from non-renewable fossil sources.  Since wood will be used, there will be no issue of competing with raw material used for food production.  Besides biofuel production, succinic acid and butanol, can be used directly or further refined into numerous different products classified as green chemicals.
