generation ethanol. New processes using the enzymatic hydrolysis technology of lignocellulosic residues like bagasse and sugarcane leaves as feedstock can increase the ethanol production in these plants, reducing the land requirements and the environmental of impact biofuels production in large scale. The lignocellulosic ethanol production using enzymatic hydrolysis technology is one of the most promising alternatives of 2 nd generation biofuels, due to its high conversion efficiencies and low… CONTINUE READING
