Table 1 Multi-phase process for new lignin product-market opportunity research

From: Opportunities for lignin valorization: an exploratory process

Problem:
Value-added applications for biorefinery waste lignin
Phase I:
PAC vendor content analysis
Phase II:
PAC buyer/user survey
Objective:
Assess the criteria in which PAC is currently promoted by vendors
Objective:
Explore attributes in which lignin-based PAC for mercury sequestration from electric generation power plant flue gas is purchased, examine barriers to entry and market opportunity
Implications:
• The process may be applied to investigate other value-added opportunities.
• Lignin has a potential market application as PAC for mercury sequestration from electric generating power plant flue gas.
