By employing an optimized chemo-enzymatic technique, sinapine was effectively liberated and completely converted into sinapic acid. Following this, the sinapic acid was recovered using an extensively optimized membrane filtration technology involving nanofiltration and diafiltration. Lastly, the residual biomass (fats, cellulose, lignin) were also fractionated and characterized for their use in other products. With these unique approaches in fractionation, separation and process integration, the process developed has an improved efficiency, cost effectiveness and environmental impact. The establishment of these processes can lead to new technology developments, and economic opportunities, which can, in turn, enable the cost-effective production of advanced bioproducts.
