Abstract A combined pretreatment of NH4Cl impregnation and refining was developed to recover the fermentable sugars and improve the bioethanol yield. The xylose was recovered to decrease the cost of bioethanol production, moreover, the impregnation using nonmetal salt had little influence on the environment, and the energy consumption of the refining process was hugely reduced by the impregnation. The results showed that a high-temperature, short-time impregnation (170 °C, 10 min) led mainly to ...

Abstract An efficient and low-cost approach to preparing CNFs with succinic acid hydrolysis and NaClO2 oxidation is explored. High-temperature-short-time hydrolysis can depolymerize the cellulose, whereas the dispersibility of the CNFs is hugely enhanced by NaClO2 oxidation under alkaline condition. The degradation of cellulose in succinic acid hydrolysis follows first-order reaction kinetics and is severely influenced by the hydrolysis temperature, moreover, the molecular chains of the cellulos...

Abstract Pretreatment using an acid salt is a novel technology for biomass conversion, which not only improves the following enzymatic efficiency but also decreases the equipment corrosion. In the present work, MgCl2 was used as a pretreatment for enzymatic saccharification. After pretreatment, the solid substrate (SS) and pretreatment liquor (PL) were characterized, and the SS was enzymatically hydrolyzed to evaluate the conversion yield of cellulose (CYC). The results showed that the pretreatm...
