The following are expected outcomes/impacts of this work: value-added, durable wood-based composite materials, biomedical applications for lignocellulosic materials, alternative strategies for removing lignin from wood during bioconversion, and improved understanding of available woody biomass as well as the impacts of using the fiber for bioenergy versus other uses. In a broader sense, the work will also train undergraduate and graduate students in this important emerging area that should have important societal impact.
