Biomass pretreatment for consolidated bioprocessing (CBP)

V. Agbor, C. Carere, N. Cicek, R. Sparling and D. Levin,    University of Manitoba, Canada

Abstract:

Biomass pretreatment and subsequent downstream processing contribute to the final cost of biocommodities produced from lignocellulosic feedstocks. Strategies that employ fewer steps for the processing of biomass can reduce costs and produce fuels and value-added products more cost effectively. This chapter reviews the various types of physico-chemical pretreatments used for lignocellulosic biomass. It describes the methods and process conditions used, as well as the physical and chemical effects of the treatment on biomass structure. Different configurations of biomass processing are ...
