Maize feedstocks with improved digestibility reduce the costs and environmental impacts of biomass pretreatment and saccharification

Abstract

BACKGROUND Despite the recognition that feedstock composition influences biomass conversion efficiency, limited information exists as to how bioenergy crops with reduced recalcitrance can improve the economics and sustainability of cellulosic fuel conversion platforms. We have compared the bioenergy potential-estimated as total glucose productivity per… (More)
