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.Changes in chemical composition were evident at severities greater than 4.24 resulting in a loss of xylose and the production of breakdown products known to inhibit fermentation (particularly formic acid and acetic acid).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.
