- ... The current study was initiated to evaluate the potential of sugar saps from nipa (Nypa fruticans) palm as sustainable feedstock for ethanol production. Nipa palms managed as plantations on four sites was chosen for this study with palms within 8–100 years of age. All palms studied were found to have the potential to produce sugar saps from 0.4 to 1.2 L d-1 per palm. Further chemical characterizat ...

- ... Canna edulis ker is a potential feedstock for ethanol production because of its low nutrition requirements and the high starch content of its tubers. The processing of C. edulis is limited by the high viscosity of the biomass. In this study, cell wall degrading enzymes (CWDEs) containing acid xylanase and β-glucanase were successful in reducing the viscosity (from 167.30 Pa s to 8.66 Pa s) at 50 ° ...
