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 ...
Pacific Northwest Wood-Based Biofuels: Site Selection & Design
This document presents Pacific Northwest supply chain estimates, case studies of specific sites within the PNW region, and conceptual master plans for consideration by stakeholders and communities as they search for ways ...

NARA Newsletter, Volume 5.2
This newsletter includes the following articles: NARA will host a wood-based biofuels conference; Environmental impact of a slash to sugar supply chain; and Sugar yields from two feedstock sources.
Pretreatment of Woody Biomass for Biofuel Production
Biofuel production from woody biomass through the sugar platform requires efficient production of fermentable sugars either chemically and enzymatically by hydrolyzing polysaccharides in wood cell walls. Enzymatic sugar ...
