  1. 1. Chemical characterization in the biorefinery of lignocellulose : Formation and management of oxalic acid and analysis of feedstocks for bioethanol production

    Author : Anders Sjöde; Nils-Olof Nilvebrant; Leif J. Jönsson; Arthur J. Ragauskas; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; biorefinery; enzymes; ethanol; lignocellulosic feedstocks; oxalic acid; scaling; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The pulp and paper industry is entering a new era. Pulp mills will be transformed to biorefineries that produce not only pulp, but also biofuels and novel products from lignocellulose. This thesis addresses problems connected with the industrial transition to environmental-friendly technologies and the implementation of the biorefinery concept. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ethanol from lignocellulose : Management of by-products of hydrolysis

    Author : Björn Alriksson; J Leif Jönsson; Vincent Eijsink; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ethanol; Lignocellulose; Detoxification; Genetic engineering; Enzyme production; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Fuel ethanol can be produced from lignocellulosic materials, such as residues from agriculture and forestry. The polysaccharides of lignocellulose are converted to sugars by hydrolysis and the sugars can then be fermented to ethanol using microorganisms. However, during hydrolysis a wide range of by-products are also generated. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biorefining of lignocellulose : Detoxification of inhibitory hydrolysates and potential utilization of residual streams for production of enzymes

    Author : Adnan Cavka; Leif J. Jönsson; John N. Saddler; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Lignocellulosic biomass is a renewable resource that can be utilized for the production of biofuels, chemicals, and bio-based materials. Biochemical conversion of lignocellulose to advanced biofuels, such as cellulosic ethanol, is generally performed through microbial fermentation of sugars generated by thermochemical pretreatment of the biomass followed by an enzymatic hydrolysis of the cellulose.

  4. 4. Wood chips for kraft and sulfite pulping : evaluation of novel forest-industrial drum-chipping technology

    Author : Jessica Gard Timmerfors; Leif J. Jönsson; David Blomberg; Sören Östlund; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; wood chip; drum chipper; impregnation; pulping; sulfite process; kraft process; Scots pine; Norway spruce; heartwood; frozen wood; moisture content;

    Abstract : Wood chipping and the supply of high-quality wood chips are of critical importance for most forest-industrial processes. The quality of wood chips affects product yield, product quality, and processability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biochemical conversion of biomass : hydrothermal pretreatment, by-product formation, conditioning, enzymatic saccharification, and fermentability

    Author : Dimitrios Ilanidis; Leif J. Jönsson; Carlos Martin; Björn Alriksson; Eulogio Castro; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; lignocellulosic biomass; hydrothermal pretreatment; enzymatic digestibility; ethanolic fermentation; microbial inhibitors; conditioning;

    Abstract : Lignocellulosic residues have great potential as feedstocks for production of bio-based chemicals and fuels. One of the main routes is biochemical conversion, which typically includes pretreatment, enzymatic saccharification, microbial fermentation of sugars, and valorization of hydrolysis lignin. READ MORE
