Acid-based Hydrolysis Processes for Ethanol from Lignocellulosic Materials : a Review

  title={Acid-based Hydrolysis Processes for Ethanol from Lignocellulosic Materials : a Review},
  author={Mohammad J Taherzadeh and Keikhosro Karimi},
Bioethanol is nowadays one of the main actors in the fuel market. It is currently produced from sugars and starchy materials, but lignocelluloses can be expected to be major feedstocks for ethanol production in the future. Two processes are being developed in parallel for conversion of lignocelluloses to ethanol, “acid-based” and “enzyme-based” processes. The current article is dedicated to review of progress in the “acid-basedhydrolysis” process. This process was used industrially in the 1940s… CONTINUE READING
