The use of biofuels and biochemicals as alternatives to petroleum-based products has attracted much attention over the last few years. This attractiveness stems from their classification as sustainable products supported by legislative incentives to promote their market penetration. The use of biomass as a feedstock for the production of fuels and chemicals will, in theory, decrease the dependence on fossil fuels and petrochemicals and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It is however clear that the introduction of biofuels and biochemicals, and hence the replacement of petroleum-based products, will only be successful if they are commercially competitive. This will result in superior product characteristics and can be directly used as dropin solutions for established chemical value chains.
