Abstract: The furfural production technologies are reviewed. The technology of furfural production from pentaose is briefly illustrated. The furfural production by reaction-extraction coupled process is the most promising new furfural production technology. If the two-step furfural production technology and cellulose ethanol technology can be combined, it will be contributed to realizing the comprehensive utilization of biomass raw materials. It will also be contributed to speeding up the industrial application of two-step furfural production technology and cellulose ethanol technology.

Key words: furfural, pentaose, one-step process, two-step process, reaction-extraction coupled process
