- ... Successful utilization of lignocelluloses for fermentation alcohol or other chemicals requires development of economic conversion techniques. Chemical, physical and thermal processes were applied to wheat straw (WS) and the modified products were assayed by enzymatic hydrolysis. Treatments that remove pentosans or lignin make the cellulose more readily available to saccharifying enzymes. Autohydro ...
