Lignocellulosic biomass, for its large quantities and relatively low cost, is regarded as a potential renewable energy resource for cost-effective ethanol production.1 Wheat straw is one of the most abundant crop residues in European countries with a production of 170 million tonnes per year, and it seems to be one of the cheapest and the most useful raw material for ethanol production.2 Wheat straw is composed of a mixture of cellulose and hemicellulose (45 % and 30 %, respectively) that are… Expand
