Solid-state fermentation of aspen (Populus tremuloides) wood with Merulius tremellosus for 8 weeks removed 52% of the lignin but only 12% of the total wood weight, and increased the cellulase digestibility to 53% from 18%. Water-soluble and enzyme-solubilized lignin degradation products accumulated. Delignification was fastest at temperatures between 25 and 32.5 degrees C and at a water-to-wood ratio of 2. Initial pH values between 4 and 6 were optimal; M. tremellosus acidified the wood to… CONTINUE READING
