From Waste to Value – Waldvogel research highlighted in public media

The worldwide demand for vanillin is not covered by natural deposits, the major part is obtained synthetically through a process that is harmful to the environment. Researchers at the Mainz University developed a process to produce vanillin from wood waste in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. The team around Prof. Waldvogel uses an electroorganic method as a green alternative.
