- ... This study presents the ultrasound assisted metal chloride treatment of sugarcane bagasse (SCB) for bioethanol production. The operating parameters pertaining to pretreatment and enzymatic saccharification were optimized. The ultrasound assisted FeCl3 pretreatment (UAFP) showed the maximum cellulose recovery and delignification of 94.94 and 79.42%, respectively, at the optimum conditions (particle ...
