Industrial Crops producing added value Oils for Novel chemicals (ICON)

Start date: Mar 1, 2008, End date: Feb 28, 2013,

Replacing fossil oil with renewable resources is perhaps the most urgent need and the most challenging task that human society faces today. Cracking fossil hydrocarbons and building the desired chemicals with advanced organic chemistry usually requires many times more energy than is contained in the final product. Thus, using plant material in the chemical industry does not only replace the fossil ...
