We state in dalinyeb.com/bbs: that furfural production should be part of cellulosic ethanol processes
Independent researchers confirm this!
- As the supply of starch grain and sugar cane, currently the main feedstocks for bioethanol production, becomes limited, lignocelluloses will be sought as alternative materials for bioethanol production.
- Production of cellulosic ethanol is still cost-inefficient because of the low final ethanol concentration and the addition of nutrients.
- Add revenue to a lignocellulosic biorefinery by:
- Make furfural first and then use
- the lignocellulosic residues from furfural production (in simultaneous saccharification and co-fermentation process).
