Microbial Fermentation Strategies for Biomass Conversion

Abstract

Fermentation platform for biomass biochemical conversion refers to the process of biomass conversion by microbial fermentation. After the pretreatment of lignocellulose, the subsequent process includes several typical biological steps: cellulase and hemicellulase production, enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose, hexose fermentation, and pentose fermentation. The integrated processes should shorten the production cycle and save capital costs, which is beneficial to the biomass conversion. Several processes, including separate hydrolysis and fermentation, simultaneous saccharification and fermentation, simultaneous saccharification and cofermentation, consolidated bioprocessing, ...
