Hydrothermal digestion of lignocellulosics and associated analysis
Pages: 5 - 10
Procedures and methods for the treatment of biomass for the subsequent production of bioethanol as well as for the analysis of the main components, intermediate and final products of hydrothermal digestion, fermentability and yields of ethanol were established. This built of Institut für Holztechnologie Dresden (IHD) technical and methodological skills permit process developments in the field of production of bio-based liquid fuels (ethanol, butanol), but also of biogas. Specifically, the chemical analytical capabilities to enable response of recurring problems in the field of characterization of lignocellulosics in connection with the chemical modification of wood, characterization of the reaction products of wood or of its components, as well as the interaction with adhesives.
