Humins are a major byproduct formed from acid-catalyzed biomass hydrolysis and are usually considered as a low-value material. In this work, humins were completely degraded by a two-step technology, involving alkaline-catalytic hydrothermal treatment followed by wet oxidation. Using this technology, humins were converted to value-added acetic acid for first… CONTINUE READING
