A Comparative Study on Lignocellulose Pretreatments for Bioethanol Production from Cotton Stalk

I. Haykir & U. Bakir
Finite fossil fuel resources, rising oil prices and environmental concerns are important issues that lead to the exploration of new fuel substitutes. Bioethanol, a renewable transportation fuel from biomass stands out as the major one that minimize the dependence on fossil fuels and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions. Vehicles use bioethanol up to 10% as blends with gasoline. Today, employment of novel pretreatment techniques for lignocellulosic biomass is essential to reduce process costs and create...
