Miscanthus : a fast-growing crop for biofuels and chemicals production

  title={Miscanthus : a fast-growing crop for biofuels and chemicals production},
  author={Nicolas Brosse and Anthony Dufour and Xianzhi Meng and Qining Sun and Arthur J Ragauskas},
Miscanthus represents a key cand idate energy crop for use in biomass-to-liquid fuel-conversion processes and biorefi neries to produce a range of liquid fuels and chemicals; it has recently attracted considerable attention. Its yield, elemental composition, carbohydrate and lignin content and composition are of high importance to be reviewed for future biofuel production and development. Starting from Miscanthus, various pre-treatment technologies have recently been developed in the literature… CONTINUE READING
