  3. 13. Fenton Pre-treatment of a Birch Kraft Pulp for MFC preparation

    Författare :Pia Hellström; Helena Håkansson; Anette Heijnesson Hultén; Magnus Paulsson; Monica Ek; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Microfibrillated cellulose; Fenton chemistry; carbonyl groups; surface charge; total charge; Enzymatic hydrolysis; Tensile strength; z-directional strength; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The potential to use acidic hydrogen peroxide in the presence of ferrous ions (Fenton’s reagent) as a pre-treatment when producing microfibrillar cellulose (MFC) from a fully bleached birch (Betula verucosa) kraft pulp was investigated and the properties of the produced MFC was compared to the properties of a MFC produced with enzymatic pre-treatment with a monocomponent endoglucanase (FiberCare® R). The mechanical treatment to MFC was performed in a laboratory colloid mill or in a pilot high-pressure homogeniser and the pre-treated pulps as well as the produced MFCs were chemically and morphologically characterised.

  4. 14. Biochemical conversion of biomass to biofuels : pretreatment–detoxification–hydrolysis–fermentation

    Författare :Venkata Prabhakar Soudham; Jyri-Pekka Mikkola; Christer Larsson; Tom Birger Granström; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Lignocellulosic materials; Ionic liquids; Pretreatment; Inhibitors; Detoxification; Ferrous sulfate and hydrogen peroxide; reducing agents; alkaline treatments; Hydrolysis; Fermentation; Biofuels; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Sammanfattning : The use of lignocellulosic materials to replace fossil resources for the industrial production of fuels, chemicals, and materials is increasing. The carbohydrate composition of lignocellulose (i.e. cellulose and hemicellulose) is an abundant source of sugars. LÄS MER

  5. 15. Processing Lignocellulosic Biomass into Ethanol - Implications of High Solid Loadings

    Författare :Benny Palmqvist; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lignocellulose; Bioethanol; High solid loadings; Biomass rheology; Enzymatic hydrolysis; Simultaneous Saccharification and co-Fermentation;

    Sammanfattning : Fuel ethanol from lignocellulosic biomass has the potential to provide a sustainable replacement for traditional oil-based fuels. This dissertation assesses the processing of three different lignocellulosic materials – spruce, wheat straw and giant reed – at industrially relevant solid loadings. The work is divided into two main parts. LÄS MER
