Domestic organic waste (DOW) collected in The Netherlands was analysed and used as substrate for acetone, butanol and ethanol (ABE) production. Two different samples of DOW, referred to as fresh DOW and dried DOW, were treated by extrusion in order to expand the polymer fibres present and to obtain a homogeneous mixture. The extruded material was analysed with respect to solvent and hot water extractives, uronic acids, lignin, sugars and ash. The total sugar content in the polymeric fractions… CONTINUE READING
