Posted on 26 July 2016

University of York chemists have come up with a unique solution to ensure biorefineries are economically resilient to oil price fluctuations.

Dr Mario De Bruyn, Postdoctoral Research Associate, and colleagues in York’s Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence in the Chemistry Department, have developed an innovative, simple and scalable method to produce an additional chemical product from leftover biomass sugars– levoglucosenone.
