Many patents claiming new processes for the conversion of glycerol into valuable-added chemicals are appearing in recent years as a result of glycerol availability since it is the main by-product in the biodiesel production and in other processes concerning biomass as raw material. In a future biorefinery glycerol will remain as a platform molecule. Present review describes a selection of such patents and shows the potential of glycerol as raw material in such future chemical industries (biorefineries).

Keywords: Glycerol, biomass, catalytic process, renewable, environment, energy, catalysis, biorefinery
