... conversion costs. Pretreatment of biomass is required to achieve high sugar yield in enzymatic hydrolysis. Dilute acid pretreatment and hot water pretreatment can effectively increase the sugar yield, but they usually involve high temperature or excessive use of acid, making pretreatment one of the most...

... yield in sugar conversion is critical to the cost effectiveness of biofuel manufacturing, because it is approximately proportional to the ethanol biofuel yield. Cellulosic biomass sugar conversion consists of pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis. Biomass particle size is an important factor affecting...
