- ... The present research emphasized the utilization of a novel sequential thermochemical and sonication pretreatment technology to enhance methane production from corn stover. The corn stover was thermochemically pretreated with sodium hydroxide to enhance its lignocellulosic digestibility. Due to thermochemical pretreatment, 65.45% lignin removal and 36.33% hemicellulose solubilization was observed a ...
