- ... This work investigated the effect of three different chemical pretreatment methods on the biogas production from the anaerobic digestion of wheat straw. The lignocellulosic material was separately pretreated using i) the organic solvent N-methylmorpholine N-oxide (NMMO) at 120 °C for 3 h, ii) the organosolv method, employing ethanol as the organic solvent at 180 °C for 1 h and iii) using an alkali ...
