Technology offer: Pre-treatment of lignocellulosic biomass for the production of second-generation bioethanol

A procedure for making soluble the lignin and other polymers responsible for the low digestibility of lignocellulosic materials, in particular rice husks, has been developed by the University of Cadiz research group on "Food Engineering and Technology” (AGR-203). This new procedure utilizes hydrogen peroxide in conditions of high pressure for digesting the material. This pre-hydrolysis stage is essential for extracting maximum amounts of the sugars that are subsequently fermented to produce second-generation bioethanol.Details: Innoget
