Sugarcane bagasse was pretreated with glycerol (40-80% (w/w)) either in the presence of NaOH or H2SO4, or without any chemicals, at 190 °C, 10% biomass load, for 1 to 4 hours. The pretreatments resulted in cellulose-enriched fibres and different degrees of xylan and lignin solubilisation. Cellulose recovery was higher in pretreatments with NaOH addition and without any chemicals, than in those with H2SO4. Xylan solubilisation was almost complete in all H2SO4-assisted treatments whereas, in the… CONTINUE READING
