Mathematical modeling of cellulose conversion to ethanol by the simultaneous saccharification and fermentation process
Ethanol, a promising alternative fuel, can be produced by the simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF) of lignocellulosic biomass, which combines the enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose toExpand
