    Benefits

    Feedstock flexibility: effective for any type of woody material including softwoods

    Compatible with metal and organic contaminants like paint and preservatives

    High performance: high lignin and hemicellulose removal rate in short reactions

    Mild conditions: Low pressure and temperatures below 200°C

    No harmful emissions: Ionic liquids have low vapour pressure and are therefore not emitted to atmosphere

    Circular economy: Makes use of waste feedstocks, such as demolition wood and agricultural residues
