Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have found a way to convert a byproduct of biofuel production to renewable chemical feedstocks. "If we could take this waste lignin and increase its value, we could improve the economics for biomass derived fuels and provide a chemical feedstock that does not rely on fossil fuels," said chemistry professor Shannon Stahl.
