 BENEFIT
  • Proven viability of a promising raw material source for xylose
  • Development of a better understanding for optimising the hydrolysis process

 

lainausmerkki_kork_250pix.jpg VTT gave us access to a promising raw material source with high purity for our own piloting. With the help of VTT’s experts and competence we also gained a deeper under-standing for optimising our hydrolysis process.
