Therefore, a number of thermochemical pretreatment methods have been developed to improve digestibility (Wyman et al. 2005). Recent studies have clearly proved that there is a direct correlation between the removal of lignin and hemicellulose on cellulose digestibility (Kim and Holtzapple 2006). Thermochemical processing options appear more promising than biological options for the conversion of lignin fraction of cellulosic biomass, which can have a detrimental effect on enzyme hydrolysis. It can also serve as a source of process energy and potential co-products that have important benefits in a life-cycle context (Sheehan et al.

The figures presented in table are approximations due to fluctuating raw material costs. 8 gals of ethanol). 35 per liter. Lignocellulosic biomass costs are highly feedstock dependent (waste wood and paper costs will vary widely depending on locality and transport costs). Lignocellulose-to-ethanol production costs would be expected to become lower in the future as new technology improves the overall conversion processes. Biomass feedstock costs represent the predominant expenditure in bioethanol production, with first-generation feedstocks generally 50–80 % of total costs, while for lignocelluloses bioethanol processes, the feedstock costs are only ~40 % of total costs (Petrou and Pappis 2009).

The product (37 % ethanol) is then concentrated in a rectifying column to a concentration just below the azeotrope (95 %) (Wooley et al. 1999). Hydrated ethanol can be employed in E95 ICEVs (Wyman et al. 1993) or in FCVs (requires onboard reforming), but for mixtures with gasoline water-free (anhydrous) ethanol is required. , corn grits), or use pervaporation or membranes (Lynd 1996). 9 % of the ethanol in the beer is retained in the dry product (Wooley et al. 1999). The main solid residual from the process is lignin.
