Abstract

Past research on biomass conversion has focused on acid pretreatment technologies that remove lignin and hemicellulose in the pretreatment step. With increasing focus on ammonia fiber expansion (AFEX) pretreatment the need to optimize enzyme systems that hydrolyze cellulose and hemicellulose becomes critical. Commercially available cellulases, xylanases, and other accessory enzymes were screened under a wide range of total enzyme concentrations for the hydrolysis of AFEX pretreated corn stover and poplar. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting (Salt Lake, UT 11/4-9/2007).
