Abstract

Lignocellulosic biomass is an attractive feedstock for the production of liquid (eg. biofuel) or gaseous (eg. methane) fuels for the transportation sector. The bioethanol production process still produces a large quantity of production waste following the distillation process. Stillage consists...

Abstract

Processing complexities associated with different lignocellulosic bioethanol production stages have hindered reaching full commercial capacity. Therefore, in this study efforts were made to remediate some issues associated with hydrolysis and fermentation, by the integration of immersed membrane...

Abstract

This study explored the potential of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) plant residue (SPR) for bioethanol production. Three particle sizes, including 400, 850 and 1300 µm of SPR, were subjected to microbial degradation by Phanerochaete chrysosporium followed by 1% H2SO4 pretreatments. FTIR and HPLC...

Abstract

Background: As a leading biomass feedstock, poplar plants provide enormous lignocellulose resource convertible for biofuels and bio-chemicals. However, lignocellulose recalcitrance particularly in wood plants, basically causes a costly bioethanol production unacceptable for commercial marketing...

Abstract

There is a growing demand for the development of alternative fuels from renewable sources, thus sweet sorghum an autogamous species has potential for bioethanol production. Traditionally recommended cultivars were varieties, however, with the development of cytoplasmic male sterile sweet sorghum...

Abstract

Fossil fuels are still major energy sources, but the search for renewable energy sources has been encouraged. Bioethanol has been recognized as an alternative to fossil fuels and nowadays it represents more than 90% of the global biofuel production. Bioethanol production from raw sugar beet...

Abstract

In this study, bioethanol production from the simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF) of pineapple peels using cellulase and Saccharomyces cerevisiae was investigated. A three-factor Box-behnken design (BBD) and response surface methodology (RSM) were employed to study the effect of...

Abstract

Grasses as lignocellulose biomass are promising feed stocks for renewable bioethanol production, since these raw materials have high productivity, require low agricultural inputs, have positive environmental impacts, are easy to process and do not compete with the food crops. However, bioethanol...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to use a modified bioreactor system for simultaneous saccharification of cellulose and bioethanol production. We tested Aspergillus niger and Trichoderma reesei for cellulose saccharification and Zymomonas mobilis for bioethanol production simultaneously in this modified...

Abstract

Lignocellulosic biomass, though available in massive volumes, is not used for production of bioethanol due to existence of several barriers which escalate the cost of production. Microorganisms possess different proteins associated with different stages of lignocellulosic bioethanol production....
