Lignocellulose as raw material in fermentation processes

  title={Lignocellulose as raw material in fermentation processes},
  author={Solange In{\^e}s Mussatto and Jos{\'e} Ant{\'o}nio Couto Teixeira},
Lignocellulose in the form of forestry, agricultural, and agro-industrial wastes is accumulated in large quantities every year. These materials are mainly composed of three groups of polymers, namely cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin. Cellulose and hemicellulose are sugar rich fractions of interest for use in fermentation processes, since microorganisms may use the sugars for growth and production of value added compounds such as ethanol, food additives, organic acids, enzymes, and others… CONTINUE READING
