Abstract

The aim of the project is to develop biochemical technologies for sustainable ethanol production from lignocellulosic material (spruce and straw). Ionic liquid pretreatment indicates a reduction in cellulose crystallinity giving a more effective enzymatic hydrolysis. Immobilized ?-glucosidase on cyanuric acid particles has been shown functional after repeated recycling operation. A double mutant of the thermophilic anaerobe Thermoanaerobacter islandicum (ace- lac-) has been devel-oped with increased ethanol yield and able to ferment pentoses, hexoses and the disaccharide cellobiose.
