Calculation of true sugar yields in high solids enzymatic hydrolysis of biomass is challenging due to the varying liquid density and liquid volume resulting from solid solubilization. Ignoring these changes in yield calculations can lead to significant errors. In this paper, a mathematical method was developed for the estimation of liquid volume change and thereafter the sugar yield. The information needed in the calculations include the compositions of the substrate, initial solids loading… CONTINUE READING
