Subject: Enzymatic hydrolysis and fermentation | Research Article | Forest residue | High solids processing | Fermentation inhibitors | High-titer biofuel
Background Forest residue is one of the most cost-effective feedstock for biofuel production. It has relatively high bulk density and can be harvested year round, advantageous for reducing transportation cost and eliminating onsite storage. However, forest residues, esp... View more
