Sugarcane bagasse valorization to xylitol: techno-economic and life cycle assessment

Arun Shaji, Yogendra Shastri, Vinod Kumar, VIVEK RANADE & Neil Hindle
A detailed techno-economic analysis and life cycle assessment (LCA) of a novel bio-refinery that produces xylitol from sugarcane bagasse are provided. The proposed process includes dilute acid pretreatment in pressurized conditions followed by fermentation (upstream section). The fermentation broth is then sent for separation and purification to the downstream section. Calculations are performed for a plant with 4 t/h of dry bagasse throughput. With a fermentation yield of 0.54 g xylitol per g of xylose,...
