The LSRE-LCM researcher Pedro Walgode was awarded with a Gold and a Silver Medal for his participation in the 2018 Artistic Skating European Championship, taking place in Azores, in the categories of “Senior Pairs Dance” and “Senior Men's Solo Dance”, respectively. Last year, he had already become “Senior Men's Solo Dance” European Champion for the first time in his career in Roana, Italy, (he has also received a bronze medal for his performance in “Senior Pairs Dance” in this competition) and was third in the World Championship (Nanjing, China). In this way, Pedro Walgode remains in the top of the international Artistic Skating scene in which he started competing in 2012.
In parallel with his outstanding sports career, Pedro Walgode has joined the LSRE-LCM team in 2017, where he conducted the research leading to his Master’s Thesis entitled “Production of green fuel additives assisted by supercritical carbon dioxide” under the supervision of Doctor Rui Faria, Doctor Ana Ribeiro and Professor Alírio Rodrigues. Nowadays, he is still part of the team but his research interests diverted to the conversion of glycerol into high added value compounds through oxidation reactions.
Staff and team of LSRE-LCM congratulates Pedro Walgode!

LSRE-LCM congratulates Professor Alírio Rodrigues, Professor Filomena Barreiro, Doctor Paula Rodrigues Pinto, Doctor Carina Costa, Doctor Inês Mota and Doctor Isabel Fernandes for their recent book entitled An Integrated Approach for Added-Value Products from Lignocellulosic Biorefineries - Vanillin, Syringaldehyde, Polyphenols and Polyurethane.
This book offers the state of the art on the progress and accomplishments of 25 years of research at the Associate Laboratory LSRE-LCM - Laboratory of Separation and Reaction Engineering - Laboratory of Catalysis and Materials on lignin conversion to value-added products and their downstream separation. The authors present the integration of the valorisation pathways as an exclusive vision of LSRE-LCM resulting from hands-on experience on reaction and separation processes: the integrated process for lignin valorisation.
For those who are interested in this subject-matter of Lignocellulosic Biorefineries we advise the read of this book.
