Ethanol produced from lignocellulosic biomass through a number of conversion pathways presents a more viable alternative to fossil fuels because non-food feedstocks are used. The approaches for ethanol production from biomass, such as wood, can be classified into three general pathways: hydrolysis fermentation (hydrolysis followed by fermentation of the sugars), gasification biosynthesis (gasification followed by biosynthesis to ethanol), and gasification chemical synthesis (gasification… CONTINUE READING
