  1. 1. Ethanol from woodCellulase enzyme production

    University dissertation from Department of Chemical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Zsolt Szengyel; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Chemical technology and engineering; FPA measurement; acetic acid; furfural; non-volatile; volatile; inhibition; pH; carbon source; liquid; solid; softwood; hardwood; cellulases; production; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : Conversion of biomass to liquid fuels, such as ethanol, has been investigated during the past decades. First due to the oil crisis of the 1970s and lately because of concerns about greenhouse effect, ethanol has been found to be a suitable substitute for gasoline in transportation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Feruloyl esterases - Evaluation of their potential for biotechnological applications

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Cyrielle Bonzom; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; multi-domain enzyme; acetyl esterase; enzyme immobilization; N-glycosylation; carbohydrate active enzyme family 1; acetyl xylan esterase; heterologous production; polysaccharide utilization loci; enzyme stability; feruloyl esterase;

    Abstract : Owing to the current efforts to find sustainable alternatives to petrochemical based industries and technologies, enzymatic degradation and valorization of plant biomass has been attracting interest. Due to the complexity of plant biomass, an array of enzymes is required to hydrolyze it, including esterases. READ MORE
