The rising issues of environmental air pollution and lack of petroleum sources have fuelled substantial analysis in the direction of valorization of bio-based polymers. Lignin is the second most plentiful renewable biopolymer on Earth and the biggest pure supply of fragrant monomers. Its industrial use has attracted appreciable consideration due to its benefits of excessive carbon content material, low price and bio-renewability. Lignin is a crucial precursor for sustainable synthesis of chemical substances, polymers, and supplies to interchange or increase present petroleum-based counterparts.

Wooden pulping and different biorefinery industries extract greater than 50 million tonnes of lignin yearly, however solely ~2% is recovered for utilization in functions. Nevertheless, it”s use as a ‘inexperienced’ feedstock for fuels, chemical substances, and supplies is rising by the commercialization of extraction applied sciences coupled with transitioning in the direction of biorefinery processes. 

Lignin has primarily been produced as an industrial residue of pulp and paper factories (e.g. a by-product of the Kraft course of), and nearly all of the a number of hundreds of thousands tons of lignin produced yearly are utilized as a low-cost gasoline for energy and warmth era. As a result of continued greening (i.e. renewable feedstock) of the worldwide economic system, new functions are being commercialized. For instance, lignin-based renewable purposeful fillers are utilized in completely different rubber functions as a sustainable various to carbon black and silica. Current developments embrace use of lignin as a carbon additive in li-ion batteries., attributable to elevated demand for sustainable and environmentally pleasant vitality storage.
