DESCRIPTION

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The invention relates to lignin-derived liquid fuels, and in particular to oils that are soluble in diesel fuels and methods of their production. In particular, residual lignin from a lignocellulosic biomass refinery process is subject to treatment in supercritical ethanol, propanol or butanol, under conditions sufficient to provide a combustible...
