The aim of this work rk was to analyse different scenarios for a bioethanol and bioogas producing wheat straw biorefinery focusing on the m maximal energy output. Wheat straw was steam exploded at different times and temperature conditions. Glucose yields and specific biogas yields were determined via laboratory batch¬ experiments. Ethanol yield was stated to be 0.4 4 gEtOH/glucose. Five different scenarios, including single biogas production of untreated and pretreated wheat straw was well as...
