Proposal for biorefineries based on mixed cultures for lignocellulosic biofuel production: a techno‐economic analysis

An innovative conceptual design is introduced for lignocellulosic‐based biochemical platform biorefineries using three mixed‐culture bioprocesses that sequentially disintegrate each polysaccharide...

Formate‐assisted pyrolysis of biomass: an economic and modeling analysis

An economic analysis was performed to determine the economic potential and commercialization barriers of producing renewable gasoline and diesel (RGD) fuel blendstocks via formate‐assisted...

Rice straw as a feedstock for biofuels: Availability, recalcitrance, and chemical properties

The surplus availability of rice straw, its limited usage, and environmental pollution caused by its inefficient burning has fostered research for its valorization to biofuels. This review...

An optimization‐based web application for synthesis and analysis of biomass‐to‐fuel strategies

We develop an optimization‐based web application for assessing biomass‐to‐fuels strategies based on the Biomass Utilization Superstructure (BUS) framework. This web application allows researchers...

Strengths, challenges, and opportunities for hydrothermal pretreatment in lignocellulosic biorefineries

Pretreatment prior to or during biological conversion is required to achieve high sugar yields essential to economic production of fuels and chemicals from low cost, abundant lignocellulosic...

Syngas biomethanation: state‐of‐the‐art review and perspectives

Significant research efforts are currently being made worldwide to develop more efficient biomethane production processes from a variety of waste streams. The biomethanation of biomass‐derived...

Rational strain engineering interventions to enhance cellulase secretion by Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Lignocellulosic biomass remains an attractive feedstock for the production of fuels if a technology can be developed to overcome its recalcitrance. Consolidated bioprocessing (CBP) is one...

Setting the design space of biorefineries through sustainability values, a practical approach

Sustainable development has become an outstanding aspiration in our society. However, the meaning of sustainability and how it should be operationalized is a complex issue that depends on...

Integrated microalgae biorefinery: Impact of product demand profile and prospect of carbon capture

An integrated microalgae biorefinery producing fuels and value‐added products needs to be optimally synthesized for realizing its potential. A large‐scale optimization model considering biorefinery...

Process development and techno‐economic analysis of bio‐based succinic acid derived from pentoses integrated to a sugarcane biorefinery

Bio‐based succinic acid is a potential building block for the production of renewable chemicals and polymers. The use of hemicellulosic hydrolyzate from sugarcane bagasse allows production of...
