Liquefying and foaming biomass waste: The oxypropylation of biomass residues, reviewed in this paper, is connected to sustainability as a biorefinery process for the synthesis of bio-based polyols, allowing partial substitution of the propylene oxide utilized by the conventional route. Such polyols exhibit similar properties to their petrochemical counterparts, making polyols an economical alternative for the production of, for example, polyurethane foams.
