  1. 1. Development of the Steam Pretreatment Process for Production of Ethanol from Lignocellulosic Biomass

    Author : Sanam Monavari; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Spruce; Ethanol production; Sugarcane bagasse; SSF; Fermentation; Enzymatic hydrolysis; SO2; Steam pretreatment; Acid catalyst;

    Abstract : At a time when natural petroleum resources are on the verge of depletion, and concern about climate change is increasing, the potential of lignocellulosic material for the production of bioethanol is well recognized. Ethanol can be produced from biomass through enzymatic hydrolysis and fermentation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lignocellulosic Ethanol Production: Studies on Sugarcane Bagasse, Paja Brava, Wheat Straw, Quinoa Stalks and Curupaú

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Cristhian Carrasco; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Steam pretreatment; ethanol production; SSCF; arabinosylated aromatics; SO2; H2SO4; sugarcane bagasse; paja brava; wheat straw; quinoa stalks; Anadenanthera colubrina;

    Abstract : Lignocellulosic biomass refers to plant material that is composed mainly of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. These materials are today of large interest to researchers in the field of biofuel and bioenergy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bioethanol Production from Lignocellulosic Materials: Some studies on Sugarcane Bagasse and Paja Brava

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Cristhian Carrasco; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Paja Brava Sugarcane Bagasse Saccharomyces cerevisiae Pichia stipitis;

    Abstract : The commercial feasibility of ethanol production from biomass is dependent on the availability of lignocellulose in large amounts at low cost. Various kinds of agricultural residues are of interest, due to the fact that these feedstocks have well-established cultivation procedures already in place, as well as technology for harvest and transportation.

  4. 4. Ethanol from Sugarcane Lignocellulosic Residues - Opportunities for Process Improvement and Production Cost Reduction

    University dissertation from Department of Chemical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Stefano Macrelli; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Bioethanol from sugarcane is a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels, and the increasing demand for fuel ethanol has prompted studies on the use of the lignocellulosic residues of sugarcane, namely bagasse and leaves, as new feedstock. This thesis describes various process designs and the economic feasibility of producing second generation (2G) ethanol from bagasse and leaves via the enzymatic route in an integrated sugarcane biorefinery, where first-generation (1G) ethanol is produced from sugarcane sugar.

  5. 5. Assessing the sustainability of bioethanol production in Nepal

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Dilip Khatiwada; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bioethanol; sustainability; life cycle assessment; net energy values; greenhouse gas GHG balances; sustainable development; least developed countries LDCs ; Nepal; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Mechanical and thermal engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Mekanisk och termisk energiteknik; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Climatology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Klimatologi;

    Abstract : Access to modern energy services derived from renewable sources is a prerequisite, not only for economic growth, rural development and sustainable development, but also for energy security and climate change mitigation. The least developed countries (LDCs) primarily use traditional biomass and have little access to commercial energy sources. READ MORE
