Exploiting Lignin-Carbohydrate Complex (LCC) through Artificial Intelligence

Project Details


To address UN Sustainability Goals, the current petroleum-based industry must be replaced with a green and sustainable alternative. Biorefineries, i.e. facilities that integrate biomass conversion processes and equipment to produce fuels, power, and value-added chemicals from biomass, are well suited for this purpose. The cross-disciplinary international AI-4-LCC team will develop a new green and cost-efficient biorefinery concept for a range of high-value applications like carbon fibers, thermoplastics and 3D objects. The research results will establish a roadmap for adoption of wood-derived products in these advanced applications. This database of digitalized research data and results will serve as a future resource, to mine in the future via artificial intelligence (AI) methods the optimal processing conditions and thus, identify promising new investigation routes.
