- ... Interest in the use of corncobs as feedstock for bioethanol production is growing. This study assesses the feasibility of sequential thermochemical diluted sulfuric acid pretreatment of corncobs at moderate temperature to hydrolyze the hemicellulosic fraction, followed by enzymatic hydrolysis of the whole slurry, and fermentation of the obtained syrup. The total sugar concentration after enzymatic ...
