- ... BACKGROUND: Barley straw (Hordeum vulgare L.) is an attractive lignocellulosic material and one of the most abundant renewable resources for fuel ethanol production. Although it has high cellulose and hemicellulose contents, there are several challenges and limitations in the process of converting it to fuel ethanol. High ash, silica and lignin contents in barley straw make it an inferior feedstoc ...
