Sustainable bio-asphalt from lignin

Wageningen Food & Biobased Research is making progress with the development of bio-asphalt. Half of the fossil-based bitumen has been replaced by the natural binder lignin in a number of demonstration projects. The quality of the bio-asphalt compares well with conventional asphalt, which is good news for an international asphalt industry actively seeking bio-based alternatives.
