Enzymatic conversion of xylan into valuable products.
Snapshot: Xylan represents a vast store of potential value but rather than seeing beneficial use, much of this reservoir is lost in catastrophic wildfires that result in significant property loss and tragic loss of life. This Forest Service research aims to unlock the considerable potential value of xylan, thus providing the economic benefit of developing a new resource while incentivizing the removal of hazardous woody biomass from at-risk forests.
