In this study we focus mainly on the behavior of model biomass in hydrothermal pretreatment which would lead to better understanding of effective biomass raw material. Experiments for hydrothermal pretreatment were proposed to study the behavior of model biomass on continuous ¬flow system in terms of the effect of temperature, flow rate, residence time, and feed stock concentration. The experimental conditions were temperatures between 180 and 275°C, a pressure of 8 MPa, and flow rate...
