Abstract

The conversion efficiency of high solids waste digestion as sugarcane press mud (P) may be limited due to hydrolysis step. The option of co-digestion with vinasse, main liquid waste generated from ethanol production, was investigated under batch regime at mesophilic conditions (37.5±1°C) and the...

Abstract

The plant cell wall is a source of fermentable sugars in second-generation bioethanol production. However, cellulosic biomass hydrolysis remains an obstacle to bioethanol production in an efficient and low-cost process. Clostridium thermocellum has been studied as a model organism able to produce...

Jerusalem artichoke (JA) has a high productivity of tubers that are rich in inulins, a fructan polymer. These inulins can be easily broken down into fructose and glucose for conversion into ethanol by fermentation. This review discusses tuber and inulin yields, effect of cultivar and environment on ...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of the present study was to investigate the effects of a yeast hydrolyzate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, obtained after ethanol production from sugarcane biomass, on in vitro rumen fermentation in Rusitec fermenters inoculated with rumen microorganisms from sheep. Four fermenters were...

AbstractFull Text

From time memorial, humans have used many plants as a treatment for many diseases. About two third of plant species are estimated to have a medicinal value. Plants synthesize phytochemicals which have anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative and anti-microbial microbial properties thus making them...

AbstractFull Text

This publication presents the projections of agroindustrial production costs of the sugar-energy sector for the 2017/18 harvest in the Center-South region of Brazil. Characterized by the fall in harvested area and productivity, this harvest should show an increase in total sugar production costs...

Abstract

This study examines the fermentation of autohydrolyzed and 1-n-butyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate (C4mimOAc) pretreated sugarcane bagasse, using four different yeast strains to determine the efficiency of bioethanol production. Three strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S. cerevisiae) and one of ...

Abstract

Hydrogen production from hydrothermally pretreated (200°C for 10 min at 16 bar) sugarcane bagasse was analyzed using response surface methodology. The yeast extract concentration and the temperature had a significant influence for hydrogen production (p-value 0.027 and 0.009, respectively). Maximum ...

Abstract

Sugarcane biorefineries, despite their contribution to sustainable transportation fuels and mitigation of carbon emissions in the mobility sector, produce a large amount of carbon dioxide in their conversion processes. According to the Paris climate agreement, a carbon neutral energy system has to...

Abstract

Sludge is the solids recovered from wastewater treatment. Its high content of organic matter makes it a potential biomass resource for renewable energy production. In this study, batch and continuous countercurrent fermentations were performed with a 60:40 mixture (dry weight basis) of lime-treated ...
