Lignocellulosic biomass is a renewable and abundant resource that is suitable for the production of bio-based materials such as biofuels and chemical products. However, owing to its complex chemical composition, it requires a process that enhances the release of sugars. Pretreatment is an essential stage in increasing the efficiency of enzymatic hydrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass. The most widely used pretreatment methods operate at high temperatures (160–290 °C) and pressures (0.69 to 4.9…
