Fast-growing hybrid poplar species are attractive as feedstocks for the production of bio-based chemicals including biofuels. Pretreatment makes cellulose accessible to enzymatic hydrolysis, producing hemicellulose and lignin as major co-products. Poplar woodchips pretreated hydrothermally in an experimental industrial pilot-plant generated two(More)
In this study on the valorization of hemicelluloses (a co-product generated during cellulosic bioethanol production), prehydrolyzates obtained from poplar woodchips pretreated in an industrial experimental steam-explosion pilot-plant facility were evaluated for the production of bioxylitol using the yeast, Candida guilliermondii FTI 20037, employing both(More)
