[Thesis] Fractionation process of surplus biomass by autohydrolysis in subcritical water obtaining added value products by Florencia M. Yedro

In the past years, the challenge is a society based on the concept of bioeconomy. This term refers to the sustainable production and conversion of biomass into a range of food, health, fibre, industrial products and energy developed in futures biorefineries. The hydrothermal process has been proposed to develop sustainable and efficient conversion of natural […]

[Paper] Hydrothermal fractionation of grape seeds in subcritical water to produce oil extract, sugars and lignin: biorefinery example

In the present work, the fractionation of grape seeds was studied using solvothermal extraction and a hydrothermal fractionation-hydrolysis process focused in the production of added value components. The grape seeds were hydrothermally treated using a multi-step two-solvent and temperature profile fractionation in order to separate the added value components from hemicelluloses, celluloses and lignin in […]
