CONDENSED TANNIN-CONTAINING COMPOSITION WHICH IS CURED BY APPLICATION OF HEAT AND PRESSURE
The present invention addresses the problem of providing: a composition which is capable of forming a biomass material with low energy consumption by simple processes and simple facilities
a molded body which is obtained from the composition
and a method for producing the molded body. A composition of the present invention is a composition which is cured by the application of heat and pressure and which is characterized by containing an element that is powdered or broken into small pieces, 8% by weight or more of condensed tannin and 8% by weight or more of a sugar that is selected from the group consisting of monosaccharides and oligosaccharides. Sucurose, glucose, fructose, maltose, xylose or lactose is preferable as the above-mentioned sugar. It is also preferable that the composition additionally contains an acid catalyst.
