Project Title
Hydrolytic depolymerization of Kraft Lignin/Black Liquor for the bio-polyols production

Project Objectives
Production of polyols from hydrolytic depolymerization of Kraft lignin/Black liquor using water alone as a solvent.
Replacement of petroleum based polyols by Kraft lignin/Kraft black liquor based polyols in the production of rigid polyurethane foam.

Supervisor & Co-Supervisor:      Dr. Chunbao (Charles) Xu & Dr. John Schmidt (FPInnovations)
