The aqueous phase mainly consists of carboxylic acids, from which salts such as calcium acetate and calcium formate can be produced. In the aqueous fraction of the bio-oil, these acids are present in amounts up to 10 wt.%. They have potential applications such as road or runway de-icing, sulfur dioxide removal during fossil fuel combustion, or as a catalyst during coal combustion.
