  1. 1. 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.

  2. 2. Biochemical conversion of biomass to biofuels : pretreatment–detoxification–hydrolysis–fermentation

    Author : Venkata Prabhakar Soudham; Jyri-Pekka Mikkola; Christer Larsson; Tom Birger Granström; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Lignocellulosic materials; Ionic liquids; Pretreatment; Inhibitors; Detoxification; Ferrous sulfate and hydrogen peroxide; reducing agents; alkaline treatments; Hydrolysis; Fermentation; Biofuels; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The use of lignocellulosic materials to replace fossil resources for the industrial production of fuels, chemicals, and materials is increasing. The carbohydrate composition of lignocellulose (i.e. cellulose and hemicellulose) is an abundant source of sugars. READ MORE

  3. 3. Environmental Assessment of Emerging Routes to Biomass Based Chemicals The Case of Ethylene

    Author : Christin Liptow; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fermentation; sugarcane; time lags; gasification; biomass based chemicals; wood; land use; life cycle assessment; ethylene; LCA;

    Abstract : The production of bulk chemicals from biomass instead of fossil resources is perceived as one promising option to decrease society's environmental impact. However, though considerable research and development efforts aim at such production, it might take several more years before biomass based bulk chemicals are fully commercialized. READ MORE

  4. 4. Process development for combined pentose and hexose fermentation

    Author : Fredrik Nielsen; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bioethanol; Lignocellulose; Xylose fermentation; Co-fermentation; Process design; Agricultural residues; Saccharomyces cerevisiae;

    Abstract : Second-generation ethanol from lignocellulose is a sustainable alternative that can partially replace fossil fuels. To be competitive with first generation ethanol from sugar and starch crops and fossil fuels, the conversion efficiency and ethanol yields of second-generation ethanol conversion processes must be improved.

  5. 5. Analytical tools for monitoring and control of fermentation processes

    Author : Heléne Sundström; Sven-Olof Enfors; Carl-Fredrik Mandenius; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Escherichia coli; flow cytometry; software sensors; viability; inclusion bodies; biomass; specific growth rate; stress; population heterogeneity; process analytical technology.; Biochemical process engineering; Biokemisk och bioteknisk processteknik;

    Abstract : The overall objective of this work has been to adopt new developments and techniques in the area of measurement, modelling and control of fermentation processes. Flow cytometry and software sensors are techniques which were considered ready for application and the focus was set on developing tools for research aiming at understanding the relationship between measured variables and process quality parameters.
