Characterization of curaua fiber
This paper describes the chemical, thermal and thermomechanical characterization of curaua fiber. The research of the thermal and thermomechanical properties of natural fibers is of major interest, considering their ...
Studies of lignin as reinforcement for plastics composites
The growing environmental concerns and depletion of fossil fuels resulted in an increased interest in environmentally friendly materials based on natural polymers. Efforts are being made to introduce the lignin in plastic ...
Production of lignocellulolytic enzymes from three white-rot fungi by solid-state fermentation and mathematical modeling
(Academic Journals, 2015-04-15)
Three species of white rot-fungi (Pleurotus ostreatus, Coriolus versicolor, and Lentinula edodes) were grown on 12 solid media based on several lignocellulosic materials (oak sawdust, coconut husks, coffee husks and corn ...
Brazilian microbial diversity as a source of new strains for deconstruction of lignocellulosic biomass.
(Hechos Microbiológicos, v. 5, n. 2, p. 133, 2014. Suplemento. Edição das Memorias do 22º Congreso Latinoamericano de Microbiologia e 4º Congreso Colombiano de Microbiologia, Cartagena, 2014. Ref. TLP-310., 2014)
Advances and Developments in Strategies to Improve Strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Processes to Obtain the Lignocellulosic Ethanol-A Review
(Humana Press Inc, 2012-04-01)
The conversion of biomass into ethanol using fast, cheap, and efficient methodologies to disintegrate and hydrolyse the lignocellulosic biomass is the major challenge of the production of the second-generation ethanol. ...
Second-generation ethanol from pineapple leaf fibers
The use of different lignocellulosic residues for the production of cellulosic ethanol is an alternative for the expanding demand of this fuel without increasing the planting area of traditional carbohydrate crops. One of ...
Fermentable sugars from Eucalyptus globulus: Process optimization
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2016-10)
In the last years, bioethanol production from lignocellulosic materials is receiving more attention from researchers since it is an abundant raw material in certain regions, it is cheaper, does not compete with foods like ...
The effect of power-ultrasound on the pretreatment of acidified aqueous solutions of banana flower-stalk: Structural, chemical and statistical analysis
(Elsevier B.V., 2015-04-01)
Various pretreatment techniques can change the physical and chemical structure of lignocellulosic biomass and improve the hydrolysis rates. High-intensity ultrasound could be a promising technique in the biomass pretreatment ...
