Development and characterization of an environmentally friendly process sequence (autohydrolysis and organosolv) for wheat straw delignification.


The present work describes the delignification of wheat straw through an environmentally friendly process resulting from sequential application of autohydrolysis and organosolv processes. Wheat straw autohydrolysis was performed at 180°C during 30 min with a liquid-solid ratio of 10 (v/w); under these conditions, a solubilization of 44% of the original… (More)
