Ewellyn Capanema's expertise is lignin chemistry and applications. More descriptively she is a Ph.D. in Chemistry and has twenty-plus years of experience in biobased product development, including pulping and biorefinery fundamentals and technologies. She has developed, optimized, and validated analytical methods to comprehensively characterize wood components; she has modified and optimized biorefinery processes for the separation of lignin and cellulose, and developed applications for these bio-based products. She is currently involved in two projects with Brazilian partners. Her knowledge, experience and network are appreciated at North Carolina State University where she is an adjunct professor at the Department of Forest Biomaterials.
