The Editorial of the current Issue (Issue 8, 1st December 2015) entitled “Lignin as a value-added byproduct to improve the economics of bioethanol?” (DOI: 10.18331/BRJ2015.2.4.2) has been authored by BRJ`s Editorial Board Member; Professor Martin A. Hubbe (North Carolina State University, USA).

Professor Martin A. Hubbe`s research on Lignocellulosic colloidal chemistry is internationally recognized. He is a Buckman Distinguished Scientist and has consulted with around 25 related industries in the field. He is the founding Editor-in-Chief of the online peer-reviewed journal BioResources, devoted to the science of lignocellulosic materials, chemicals, and applications.

As a senior in the field of pulp and paper with over 30 years of experience, Professor Martin A. Hubbe has challenged the concept based on which lignin is considered as a value-added byproduct to improve the economics of ethanol production from lignocelluloses. This must-read Editorial scrutinizes the various applications of lignin and addresses the different view points circulating around during the last decade.

The new issue also includes a comprehensive review article as well as quality original research articles.

All articles published in the journal are freely available and are published completely free-of-charge.

We look forward to welcoming you as an author.
