One of the main objectives of Waste2Fuels is the development of suitable pretreatments for lignocellulosic biomass, in order to release simple sugars from cellulose and hemicellulose, thus obtaining fermentable streams for biobutanol production. Apple pomace, a waste from juice and cider industries, has been successfully employed for biobutanol […]
