Citrus Waste Biorefinery : Process Development , Simulation and Economic Analysis

  title={Citrus Waste Biorefinery : Process Development , Simulation and Economic Analysis},
  • Published 2010
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The production of ethanol and other sustainable products including methane, limonene and pectin from citrus wastes (CWs) was studied in the present thesis. In the first part of the work, the CWs were hydrolyzed using enzymes – pectinase, cellulase and β-glucosidase – and the hydrolyzate was fermented using encapsulated yeasts in the presence of the inhibitor compound ‘limonene’. However… CONTINUE READING
