Combustion/Gasification of Hydrolysis Lignin

Air Products understands that the effective use of hydrolysis lignin by-product of cellulosic ethanol production via biochemical routes is important to the economics of your overall facility. Hydrolysis lignin can be used as a fuel in combustion or gasification processes to generate steam or electricity that is integrated back into the main process. The challenge with this approach is the efficient and effective utilization of the fuel content of this low calorific value fuel. Air Products’ oxygen enrichment and oxy-fuel burners can help enable efficient extraction of the energy content of this high-moisture, low calorific value by-product.

Our engineering specialists can help you select the appropriate oxygen system for your application. To find out more, contact us at the office nearest your location.
