The kinetics of cellulose hydrolysis under extremely low acid (ELA) conditions (0.07 wt%) and at temperatures >200 degrees C was investigated using batch reactors and bed-shrinking flow-through (BSFT) reactors. The maximum yield of glucose obtained from batch reactor experiments was about 60% for alpha-cellulose, which occurred at 205 and 220 degrees C. The maximum glucose yields from yellow poplar feedstocks were substantially lower, falling in the range of 26-50%. With yellow poplar… CONTINUE READING
