Our planet is suffering from climate change and our energy consumption is increasing each year. An effective way of tackling the situation is to simply substitute our consummable resources with renewable energy. Biomass has numerous advantages and is therefore seen as a potential replacement for non renewable energy. There are various techniques that can be applied to convert biomass into biofuels but recently the thermochemical conversion of Biomass in a molten salt medium has received a lot of attention. In this work, it will be attempted to carry out the liquefaction of kraft lignin in ZnCl2-KCl-NaCl salt mixture. At ZnCl2:KCl:NaCl= 60:20:20 in mole fraction composition, the salt should exhibit a eutectic temperature of 203°C, which will be advantageous for the liquefaction process.
