Steam pretreatment is one of the most efficient pretreatment technologies employed prior to enzymatic hydrolysis of lignocellulosics to obtain high polysaccharide conversion. In this study, steam pretreatment of non-impregnated hemp hurds was investigated at two reactor scales (2 and 10 L) by varying the temperature from 200–230 °C. Glucan recoveries were relatively high (> 82 % of original content), while xylan recoveries ranged from 18–66 % of original. Conversions of glucan and xylan in… CONTINUE READING
