Soil Stabilization with Bioenergy Coproduct

  title={Soil Stabilization with Bioenergy Coproduct},
  author={Halil Ceylan and Kasthurirangan Gopalakrishnan and Sunghwan Kim},
The production and use of biofuel have increased under the context of sustainable development. Biofuel production from plant biomass not only produces biofuel or ethanol but also coproduces products containing lignin, modified lignin, and lignin derivatives. The use of lignin-containing biofuel coproduct in pavement soil stabilization was explored as a new application area. The primary experimental test plan encompassed the comparison of coproduct-treated soils, untreated soils, and traditional… CONTINUE READING
