Simultaneous saccharification and co-fermentation of lignocellulosic residues from commercial furfural production
Make money from cellulosic pre-treatment.
Lignocellulosic Biomass Conversion to Ethanol, Furfural and Lignins

We state in that furfural production should be part of cellulosic ethanol processes

Independent researchers confirm this! 


  1. 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.
  2. Production of cellulosic ethanol is still cost-inefficient because of the low final ethanol concentration and the addition of nutrients.
  3. Add revenue to a lignocellulosic biorefinery by:
    1. Make furfural first and then use
    2. the lignocellulosic residues from furfural production (in simultaneous saccharification and co-fermentation process).
