Catalytic Conversion of Carbohydrate Sidestreams to Develop New, Innovative Chemical Applications
Carboleum 2 is a follow-up project that builds upon a previous Catalisti project, Carboleum 1. Carboleum 1 aimed to develop a new economic value chain in Flanders based on the catalytic conversion of carbohydrate sidestreams, in particular cellulosic streams, into new organic alkylamine-based intermediates and thereby support the development of new and improved chemical applications. Whereas Carboleum 1 focussed on the catalytic conversion of less complex feedstock, such as glucose, maltose and starch into aminated intermediates, Carboleum 2 progresses towards the purification and conversion of more complex cellulosic streams.
