The effect of delignification methods on enzymatic hydrolysis of forest biomass was investigated using softwood and hardwood that were pretreated at an alkaline condition followed by sodium chlorite or ozone delignification. Both delignifications improved enzymatic hydrolysis especially for softwood, while pretreatment alone was found effective for hardwood. High enzymatic conversion was achieved by sodium chlorite delignification when the lignin content was reduced to 15%, which is… CONTINUE READING
