Hemicellulose

Properties of hemicellulose produced by our technology

  • Hemicellulose content exceeds 95%

  • Polymeric hemicelluloses with high molar mass

  • Up to 50% solids content in hemicellulose extract

About 25% of wood biomass is made up of hemicellulose. Due to its water solubility, biodegradability and amorphous, flexible structure, hemicellulose is an interesting raw material for several high-value purposes. Its polysaccharide structure can be hydrolysed to sugars, which can be used in the production of different biofuels and chemicals. Polymeric, natural hemicellulose can be used as an environmentally friendly and inexpensive emulsifier to stabilise food and cosmetic products.
