The influence of presaccharification, fermentation temperature and yeast strain on ethanol production from sugarcane bagasse.
Ethanol can be produced from cellulosic biomass in a process known as simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF). The presence of yeast together with the cellulolytic enzyme complex reducesExpand
