NEW REVIEW: Understanding biomass fractionation in subcritical&supercritical water

[:en]Biomass fractionation into its individual building blocks poses a major challenge to the biorefinery concept. The recalcitrance of the lignocellulose matrix and the high crystallinity of cellulose make typical feed stocks difficult to separate into their components. Hydrothermal processing fractionates biomass by its hydrolysis. However, a deep knowledge of hydrolysis principles is required since an […]
