Topic: 8.1-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

The SPORL process consists of reacting wood chips with a solution of calcium, magnesium, or sulfite at elevated temperatures for a short time, and then size reducing the resulting material using a disk refiner to generate fibrous substrate for subsequent saccharification and fermentation. The work is a collaborative effort between industry, univ...

Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Woody biomass is a very important feedstock for the future bioeconomy for the rural US for its availability in large quantities, ease in storage, and low cost for transportation. However, woody biomass, especially softwood, is the most difficult to convert biochemically to fermentable sugars due to its strong physical integrity and chemical reca...

Mechanical pulping accounts for about 25% of the wood pulp production in the world today. This volume is expected to increase in the future. Mechanical pulping, with its high yield, is viewed as a way to extend these resources. However, mechanical pulping is electrical energy-intensive (a mill processing 300 tons of pulp/day spends about $10 mil...
