Region :Global | Report ID: FBI102892 | Status : Ongoing



Ethyl levulinate is an ester derived from the levulinic acid keto-acid. Ethyl levulinate can be produced from biomass-derived furfuryl alcohol with the help of an environmentally friendly catalyst. Such two methods for synthesis make ethyl levulinate a feasible choice for biofuel, as both precursors can be derived from biomass: levulinic acid from carbon polymerized sugars such as cellulose, and furfural from carbon polymerized sugars such as xylan and arabinan. This is used in flavors and fragrances of foods. Many uses include substitute kerosene in gas turbines, resins, plasticisers, research ventures and miscible diesel fuels.

Ethyl levulinate uses have shown a promising trend in the recent past, for example, food additives, and aroma, which are expected to continue in the next few years.
