Rice straw has attracted significant interest in Japan as a potential raw material for biorefineries. Combination of hot-compressed water treatment (HCWT) and wet disk milling (WDM) was investigated to improve the enzymatic digestibility of rice straw and enhance sugar recovery yield. Rice straw, cut to <3 mm, was autoclaved at 121, 135, and 150 °C for 60 min, and subsequently treated by wet disk milling. WDM with HCWT at 135 °C for 60 min produced maximum xylose and glucose yields of 79% and… CONTINUE READING
