Europe is committed to have a bio-based economy in 2030. It follows that a huge contribution of biorefinery products on the European demand for chemicals, energy, materials and fibers is expected in the near future. To be environmentally and economically sustainable, biorefinery will need to be flexible, versatile, energy and cost efficient . In a lignocellulose based biorefinery, the sugar platform that leads to bioethanol and added-value products through biochemical processes represents a challenging option. After ethanol distillation a lignin reach residue (LRR) is produced and used as energy source. However, it is currently underutilized with about 60% more lignin generated than is needed to meet the internal energy use [2, 3]. The exploitation of this residue for the combined production of biofuels and added value chemicals and materials represents a key factor for the increase of the efficiency of the overall ethanol production chain and its valorization is mandatory for the viability of future biorefinery operations.
