Finos research is in the field of hydrothermal upgrade of biomass into levulinic acid, a very important chemical and precursor for the production of biofuels. Finos is looking into the liquid phase resulting upon hydrothermal process of biomass to identify the best conditions for a maximum yield of levulinic acid. At the same time he is also characterizing the solid hydrothermal carbons (humins) resulting during biomass hydrothermal treatment.
