  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

    Abstract : As part of a bio-based economy, biorefineries are envisaged to sustainably produce platform chemicals via biochemical conversion of agricultural and forestry residues. However, supply risks, the recalcitrance of lignocellulosic biomass, and inhibitor formation during pre­treatment impair the economic feasibility of such biorefineries. READ MORE

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