Making Chemistry Visible
The objective of this lesson is to explain and demonstrate the chemical process of turning woody biomass into biofuel.
Environmental assessment of mild bisulfite pretreatment of forest residues into fermentable sugars for biofuel production
(Biotechnology for Biofuels, 2016)
Sugar production via pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulosic feedstock, in this case softwood harvest residues, is a critical step in the biochemical conversion pathway towards drop-in biofuels. Mild bisulfite ...
SPORL Pretreatment of Douglas-fir Forest Residue for Precommercial Scale Productions of Sugar/ Biofuel
This report describes the development of pretreatment conditions used to develop 1,000 gallons of biojet fuel derived from forest residuals.
Mild Bisulfite Pretreatment of Forest Residuals
(Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance, 2015)
In this report, researchers evaluated the effect of wood chip size, chemical loads, reaction time and temperature on simple sugar yield from the Mild Bisulfite pretreatment procedure.
Plant Cell Walls to Alcohols
This lesson looks at the break down of plant material to demonstrate the production of biofuels.
