Response of the Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Delignified Wood Using Commercial Cellulase

F. Ares, G. Pérez & M. Lopretti
Nowadays, there is a great interest in using lignocellulosic materials as substrate for the production of ethanol. The present work evaluated the effect of enzyme loadings and substrate concentration on enzymatic hydrolysis of a mixture of wood chips, sawdust and shavings. Sawmill waste pretreated biologically was provided from Nalavip S.A. It consisted in a mixture (40:20:40) of wood chips, sawdust and shavings, respectively. For study different enzyme and substrate loadings, experiments were carried with the...
