Study compares different pretreatment methods for lignocellulosic wastes : Biofuels Digest


In India, a new study conducted by researchers at Dayalbagh Educational Institute looked at the different pretreatment methods for lignocellulosic wastes for biofuels, including physical, chemical, physico-chemical, biological and combined pretreatments.

It has been shown that combined pretreatments are more effective as compared to single pretreatment and there is an extensive scope of combinations which can also be applied in future. Recent review critically discusses and compares different pretreatment methods, biomass resources, chemical composition of different agricultural biomass and the use of this biomass for bioenergy generation. Various pretreatment processes used for bio-hydrogen, bio-methane, bio-ethanol, bio-methanol bio-butanol and bio-diesel production are also discussed in the study.
