Accompanying environmental and techno-economic assessments of lignin-based resins during the innovation process

The accompanying assessments of bio-based products during the innovation process by considering environmental and techno-economic aspects supports the implementation of these products on the market. Barriers regarding the use of lignin-based resins are mostly linked to technical and economic issues, whereas the incentives are based on the expected lower environmental impacts of the lignin-based resins compared to the conventional resins. The environmental assessment conducted within the study emphasis this incentive.
