Processing wood and plants: Biomass-derived γ-valerolactone (GVL) can be used for manufacturing food, chemicals, and fuels. Numerous hydrogenation catalysts have been developed for the GVL synthesis, with heterogeneous systems arguably the most viable. We discuss current heterogeneous systems, with emphasis on catalyst innovation and development of integrated biomass processing.
