Recovered fibre from pulp mills represents a potentially significant feedstock for conversion to ethanol. Enzymatic hydrolysis of untreated recovered fibre (86.5 Kappa, 13% lignin) resulted in a hexose yield of approximately 23%, which highlighted the need for an effective pretreatment. Recovered fibre was pretreated as a substrate for enzymatic hydrolysis using oxygen delignification. An experimental design was used to optimize temperature (90-150 degrees C), caustic loading (2-10%), and… CONTINUE READING
