To make biorefinery processes valuable from both economical and energy perspectives, all components of the starting feedstock need to be properly valorized. In the present work the results obtained in steam/oxygen gasification tests on a lignin rich residue from second generation bioethanol production process are presented. The residue was collected at the end of a process of simultaneous hydrolysis and fermentation, adopted to convert sugars from steam-exploded biomass. The gasification tests were carried out with...
