Wheat straw was fractionated using a three-step biorefining approach: (1) aqueous pretreatment for hemicellulose prehydrolysis into sugars, (2) organosolv delignification, and (3) enzymatic cellulose hydrolysis into glucose. Prehydrolysis was applied to avoid degradation of hemicellulose sugars during organosolv delignification. Maximum xylose...

BACKGROUND: Ethanol-based organosolv fractionation of lignocellulosic biomass is an effective pretreatment technology for enzymatic cellulose hydrolysis to produce sugars and lignin within a biorefinery. This study focuses on the catalytic effect of H2SO4, HCl, andMgCl2 on organosolv pretreatment of willow wood and wheat straw. RESULTS: The use...

The development of cost-effective lignocellulose based biorefineries requires optimum valorisation of all main biomass constituents, i.e. both sugar polymers and lignin. Most pretreatment technologies, developed to increase the enzymatic hydrolysis of the cellulose fraction for the fermentative production of second generation biofuels or...
