One of the important issues in bio-ethanol production from lignocellulosic biomass is the effective usage of sacchararification residue. The sacchararification residue includes lignin, which is contained a variety of functional groups. It is possible to apply the lignin as raw martial for chemical agents and plastics, thus there is a need for an effective extraction technique of lignin from the sacchararification residue. In this study, enzymatic sacchararification residue was applied to the extraction technique that...
