PPG And Lignol Cooperate On Lignin

Department: Business
Keywords: cellulosic ethanol, lignin, coatings

British Columbia-based Lignol Energy will collaborate with PPG Industries to develop uses for high-purity lignin and lignin derivatives in industrial coatings. Chuck Kahle, PPG’s chief technology officer, says the companies aim to replace petrochemical materials with lignin-based ones and perhaps introduce new chemical functionality to coating formulations. Lignol plans to make high-purity lignin as a coproduct during cellulosic ethanol production.
