The aim of this project was to examine the marketing potential for producing the chemical input, furfural, from Australian agricultural waste material, energy crops and hardwoods. Furfural is an intermediate product used by the chemical industry for making a range of chemical products. Furfural is one of the product possibilities from a biomass-based chemical refinery, which is viewed as having the potential to improve environmental performance and sustainability of chemical production.
