Butanol tolerance is a critical factor affecting the ability of microorganisms to generate economically viable quantities of butanol. Current Clostridium strains are unable to tolerate greater than 2% 1-butanol thus membrane or gas stripping technologies to actively remove butanol during...
The dilute acid posthydrolysis of wheat straw hemicellulosic oligosaccharides obtained by autohydrolysis was evaluated. An empirical model was used to describe the effect of catalyst concentration (sulfuric acid, 0.1–4% w / w ) and reaction time (0–60 min) based on data from a Doehlert...
Results in a previous study showed up to a 55% increase in saccharification rates when the initial particle size range decreased from 590 < x < 850 μm down to 33 < x < 75 μm. The smaller particle sizes also lowered the viscosity of the slurry 50-fold (for an equivalent initial solids...
A new process for pretreatment of lignocellulosic biomass, designated the soaking in ethanol and aqueous ammonia (SEAA) process, was developed to improve hemicellulose preservation in solid form. In the SEAA process, an aqueous ammonia solution containing ethanol is used. Corn stover was treated...
Wheat straw was subjected to autohydrolysis treatments in order to selectively hydrolyze the hemicellulose fraction. The effects of temperature (150–240°C) and non-isothermal reaction time on the composition of both liquid and solid phases were evaluated and interpreted using the severity...
Dilute-acid hydrolysis pretreatment of sugarcane bagasse resulted in release of 48% (18.4 g/L) of the xylan in the hemicellulose fraction into the hydrolysate as monomeric xylose. In order to enhance the recuperation of this monomer, a post-hydrolysis stage consisted of thermal treatment was...
Forest biomass is a promising resource for future biofuels and bioproducts. Pre-pulping extraction of hemicellulose by alkaline (Green Liquor) pretreatment produces a neutral-pH extract containing hemicellulose-derived oligomers. A near-term option for use of this extract is to hydrolyze the...
Trichomonas vaginalis generates reduced ferredoxin within a unique subcellular organelle, hydrogenosome that is used as a reductant for H 2 production. Pyruvate ferredoxin oxidoreductase and NADH dehydrogenase (NADH-DH) are the two enzymes catalyzing the production of reduced ferredoxin. The...
