Pretreatment Strategies for Biochemical Conversion of Biomass

Abstract

Biomass is a complex raw material, especially for lignocellulosic biomass. Lignocellulosic biomass contains different components, which are essentially different. Therefore, the utilization of lignocellulosic biomass should be based on the separation of different components. However, biomass is difficult to separate and hydrolyze due to the complexity of its components and structure. Thus it is necessary to deconstruct the tight structure and complex components before hydrolysis and conversion. It is pointed out in this chapter that the pretreatment technology should be established according to the biomass characterization, conversion process, and products property. ...
