Developments in bioethanol fuel-focused biorefineries

S. Mutturi, B. Palmqvist and G. Lidén,    Lund University, Sweden

Abstract:

The production of ethanol from lignocellulose is on its way to industrial realization as evidenced by the current completion of several commercial scale plants. In these plants, biomass can be utilized for a range of different products apart from ethanol, such as electricity, biogas and heat. In this chapter, we describe the technology for production of ethanol within these biorefineries and discuss the challenges and development trends. The focus of this chapter is on the biochemical conversion routes.
