Phenolic compounds

Production of phenolic compounds from lignin 


  • Fine chemical industry (natural antioxidants, paints, varnishes, adhesives, agrochemicals, etc.).
  • Structural reinforcement of polymers (rubbers and plastics).

>> Click here and see the applications of some of the main phenolic compounds obtained.


Obtaining phenolic compounds from the depolymerization of industrial lignin (e.g. black liquor lignin or organosolv) by catalytic hydrogenation. After being characterized by advanced analytical tools, the compounds are classified according to their commercial importance and obtained by chromatographic separation and purification processes.


  • Use of renewable and abundant raw material in nature.
  • Lignin depolymerization efficiency above 79%.
  • Use of residues and co-products from the paper/cellulose and furniture industries.
