Enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulosic biomass

  title={Enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulosic biomass},
  author={Bin Yang and Ziyu Dai and Shi-You Ding and Charles E Wyman},
technology was selected as a key area for biomass technology development in the 1980s, and the US Department of Energy (DOE) has actively supported the scale up of ethanol production since the Office of Alcohol Fuels was created in the DOE after the ‘energy crisis’ of the 1970s. Although biological conversion of cellulosic biomass to fuels and chemicals through enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose offers the potential for higher yields, higher selectivity, lower energy costs and milder operating… CONTINUE READING
