PRODUCTION OF ETHANOL FROM ENZYMATIC HYDROLYSIS OF LIGNOCELLULOSIC BIOMASS AND FERMENTATION OF SUGARS

Objective

MAXIMUM SEPARATION OF THE C5 SUGARS RELEASED STEAM PRETREATMENT WHILE AVOIDING ANY DEVELOPMENT TOWARDS THE PRODUCTION OF DEGRADATION PRODUCTS. PRODUCTION OF CELLULASES FROM THE C5 SUGARS FRACTION.
OPTIMUM USE OF CELLULASE TO LIBERATE THE C6 SUGARS.
OPTIMIZATION OF THE PRODUCTION COST OF C6 SUGARS FROM THE BIOMASS.

LABORATORY AND PILOT STUDY OF A PROCEDURE FOR THE PRODUCTION OF ETHANOL FROM LIGNOCELLULOSE BIOMASS (LCB) CONSISTING OF PRETREATMENT BY AUTOHYDROLYSIS IN SUBSTRATE VAPOUR, SEPARATION OF PENTOSES IN SOLUTION AND PRODUCTION FROM THEM OF CELLULASE BY TRICHODERMIA REESEI, ENZYMATIC HYDROLYSIS OF THE PRETREATED LIGNOCELLULOSE SUBSTRATE AND FERMENTATION OF THE HYDROLYSSTATE TO PRODUCE ETHANOL.
