Study of Tolerance of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Spp. to Phenols of Lignin and High Level of Sugars

S. Vázquez & M.I. Lopretti Correa
Lignocellulosic materials are one of the most important renewable sources for the energy production. Several transformations are crucial for the use of this type of materials. There are several processes that can be use to turn cellulose into sugar, like aerobic conversion by fungi, such as Trichoderma reesei, acid and basic hydrolysis and radiation. By means of these processes a mixture of glucose and xilose is obtained at a concentration of about 10 g/l, which...
