Valorization of Cellulosic Sugars 


Are you curious about how industrial biotechnologies can produce high-value biomolecules for a variety of industrial uses - from second-generation biomass?
While bioethanol is a common end-product, building materials, adhesive resins, plastics, cosmetics, and textiles can also benefit from this technology. While the production process for first-generation (1G) sugars is well-established and extensively utilized, second-generation (2G) processes are being developed to offer substantial additional advantages.



This white paper provides an overview of the valorization of cellulosic sugars, covering both existing processes and forthcoming innovations:

  • Depiction of the production processes for both 1G and 2G sugars, as well as the associated market and political implications
  • Development of the technical and chemical aspects
  • Focus on the opportunities for innovation and challenges to be overcome
  • Insights and interviews from market and process experts
