The work is a part of the project ZOOTANOLO “The production of bioethanol as an innovative energy use of manure”. This includes both experimental and energetic activity, economic and environmental evaluation of the obtained data, with the final aim to contribute to the development of the production chain of bioethanol. The experimental part divides into several activities: pre-treatment of the animal biomass, hydrolysis of molecules of cellulose, hemicelluloses and starch by enzymes; fermentation by yeast...
