This research pretended to evaluate the use of yard pruning residues and to look for raw materials to produce bio-fuels. The hydrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass contained in the waste of the tree trimming at the Fundacion Universitaria Tecnologico Comfenalco was carried out to produce glucose syrups to, potentially, be converted into bio-ethanol. Two methods were employed, the acid hydrolysis using dilute sulfuric acid and the enzymatic hydrolysis using cellulose enzymes. As a result, a… Expand
