Effect of steam explosion on waste copier paper alone and in a mixed lignocellulosic substrate on saccharification and fermentation.

Elliston A, Wilson DR, Wellner N, Collins SR, Roberts IN, Waldron KW - Bioresour. Technol. (2015)

Bottom Line: SE resulted in a colouration, a reduction in fibre thickness and increased water absorption.SE did not improve final yields of glucose or ethanol, and at severities 4.53 and 4.83 reduced yields probably due to the effect of breakdown products and fermentation inhibitors.However, at moderate severities of 3.6 and 3.9 there was an increase in initial rates of hydrolysis which may provide a basis for reducing processing times.
