Researchers in Netherlands exploring use of lignin as alternative asphalt binder

In the Netherlands there are now test roads and cycle paths that are paved with a bitumen-like product made from the natural binder lignin. These include a section of road on an industrial site—used daily by cars and heavy trucks, some minor roads, and a cycle path at Wageningen University & Research, which is in three sections, each produced using a different lignin-based bio-bitumen.

European network stimulates industrial applications of lignin

As a natural adhesive, lignin has enormous potential in a wide range of applications. Its full industrial potential has yet to be exploited so far, however. LignoCOST, a large European network coordinated by Wageningen Food & Biobased Research, aims to change that. The objective is to develop a pan-European network which covers the entire value chain, from raw materials to cost-effective and sustainable end products.
