Cellulose to ethanol conversion with on-site cellulase production using solid-state fermentation
Lever, Mitchell (2009) Cellulose to ethanol conversion with on-site cellulase production using solid-state fermentation. PhD thesis, Murdoch University.
The economics and environmental sustainability of enzymatic lignocellulose-to-ethanol conversion processes are adversely affected by the use of purchased cellulase preparations. Commercial cellulase preparations lack the microorganisms that produce them and thus cannot be cultured on-site, resulting in a significant ongoing expense. Commercial cellulase production is energy intensive and a significant contributor to the overall environmental impact of the cellulose to ethanol conversion process...
