In a method for the continuous precipitation of lignin from black liquor black liquor is provided so as to flow as a pressurized flow in a reactor with a dwell time of less than 300 s. An acidifying agent selected from the group of carbon dioxide, acid and their combinations is led to the flow at one or more feeding sites to lower the pH of black liquor. The pH is allowed to decrease by the effect of the acidifying agent in the pressurized flow to the precipitation point of lignin, the pressure of the pressurized flow is abruptly released, and lignin particles are separated from black liquor.

Disclosed is a process for converting bio-oil, wherein the process includes the steps, where a feedstock including bio-oil selected from bio-oils, any fractions of bio-oils and any combinations thereof is subjected to azeotropic distillation with at least one alcohol to yield a liquid component, and subjecting the liquid component to alcoholysis whereby converted bio-oil is obtained. The invention also relates to the use of converted bio-oil, obtainable by the process, as heating oil, as starting material in processes for producing fuels, fuel components, fine chemicals, chemical building-blocks, and solvents.
