Cellulosic Ethanol Production from Sugarcane Bagasse without Enzymatic Saccharification

  title={Cellulosic Ethanol Production from Sugarcane Bagasse without Enzymatic Saccharification},
  author={Letha Dawson and Raj Boopathy},
Sugarcane processing generates a large volume of bagasse. Disposal of bagasse is critical for both agricultural profitability and environmental protection. Sugarcane bagasse is a renewable resource that can be used to produce ethanol and many other value-added products. In this study, we demonstrate that cane processed bagasse could be used to produce fuel grade ethanol without saccharification. A chemical pretreatment process using alkaline peroxide and acid hydrolysis was applied to remove… CONTINUE READING
