Abstract

In this study, liquid hot water pretreatment was combined with disk milling for pretreatment of sugarcane bagasse. Sugarcane bagasse was pretreated using liquid hot water (LHW) at 140–180 °C for 10 min (20% w/w solids content) and then disk milled. Disk milling improved glucose release 41–177% and ethanol production from glucose/xylose cofermentation by 80% compared to only using LHW pretreatment. The highest ethanol conversion efficiency achieved was 94%, which was observed when bagasse was treated at 180 °C with LHW and disk milled. However, a small amount of residual xylose (3 g/L) was indicative that further improvement could be achieved to increase ethanol production.
