Extract xylan from pulp, with the aim of producing xylose and xylo-oligosaccharides.
VTT provided pilot facilities and expertise for xylan extraction, developed analytical methods for analysing xylo-oligosaccharides, provided data for the techno-economical evaluation, and conducted a lifecycle analysis.
- Proven viability of a promising raw material source for xylose
- Development of a better understanding for optimising the hydrolysis process
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.
