- ... Experiments were performed using residues of wheat straw, maize stalks, maize husks and kenaf. After pretreatment with H2O2 they were fermented and ethanol concentrations in the fermentation broths determined by gas chromatography. Data obtained showed that close to theoretically maximum yields of ethanol can be obtained using this process which is highly dependent on the pH of the residues after ...
