Bio-based chemicals from biorefining: protein conversion and utilisation

E.L. Scott, M.E. Bruins and J.P.M. Sanders,    Wageningen University, The Netherlands

Abstract:

The depletion of fossil feedstocks, fluctuating oil prices and the ecological problems associated with CO2 emissions are forcing the development of alternative resources for energy, transportation fuels and chemicals: the replacement of fossil resources with biomass. The conversion of crude oil products utilises hydrocarbons and conversion to (functional) chemicals with the aid of co-reagents, such as ammonia, and various process steps. Conversely, proteins and amino acids, found in biomass, contain functionality. It is therefore attractive to exploit this to reduce the use, ...
