Processing lignin is challenging for a variety of reasons, and various chemical and biochemical routes are under investigation. However, it is poorly understood which of the substances that could be derived from lignin are useful to industry. The purpose of this work is therefore to provide a landscape analysis; identifying substances and materials produced by the chemical industry that could potentially be derived from lignin. This will provide background and guidance for work on lignin processing via biochemical routes.
