- ... Sugarcane bagasse is a residue with great potential as a feedstock for second-generation ethanol production. One of the approaches studied for making use of this material is the utilization of enzymes to hydrolyze the cell wall carbohydrates and generate fermentable sugars. These enzymes can be produced by cultivation of filamentous fungi or bacteria; however, the high production cost still repres ...
