- ... This study aimed at optimizing a liquid ammonium hydroxide pretreatment for energy cane bagasse for maximum sugar yields (glucose and xylose) via response surface methodology. Optimized pretreatment parameters included temperature (160–220°C), ammonium hydroxide to biomass ratio (0–0.5:1) and residence time (30–60min). Temperature was found to be the dominant pretreatment parameter followed by amm ...
