Comparison of SHF and SSF processes for the bioconversion of steam-exploded wheat straw


Two processes for ethanol production from wheat straw have been evaluated — separate hydrolysis and fermentation (SHF) and simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF). The study compares the ethanol yield for biomass subjected to varying steam explosion pretreatment conditions: temperature and time of pretreatment was 200°C or 217°C and at 3 or 10… (More)
