Dr. Noelia Pérez-Rodríguez holds a PhD in Agro-Food Science and Technology and has over 6 years of expertise in the areas of Biomass Conversion and Bioprocess Technology with focus on the development of biorefinery strategies for total and sustainable conversion of biomass (lignocellulosic materials) into biobased products.
Dr. Pérez-Rodríguez’s research interests include: i) biomass pretreatment and hydrolysis using chemical, physico-chemical or biological methods; ii) biomass conversion by
WooBAdh project aims to study the feasibility of replacing formaldehyde in wood adhesives by natural components derived from wood or other vegetable matter. The consortium will develop new bioadhesives which are able to provide a holistic solution to the current emissions challenges facing the wood-based composites industry. The proposed solution is focused on different modifications of polyphenols, namely lignin and tannins, for producing bioadhesives that do not contain formaldehyde in its
