Processes for producing formic acid from a carbohydrate-containing material include hydrolyzing a carbohydrate-containing material (e.g., cellulose) in the presence of a mineral acid to form an intermediate hydrolysate comprising one or more sugars, and hydrolyzing the intermediate hydrolysate to form a hydrolysate product including formic acid.. .

Multiphase porous flow reactors and methods of using same


Pfrs for running multiphasic processes are disclosed. The pfrs are single or multi-chamber devices having at least three types of regions (a liquid-contacting region, a gas-contacting region and a liquid-collection region), and a porous substrate providing fluid communication at least between the liquid-contacting and gas-contacting regions.

C1-c2 organic acid treatment of lignocellulosic biomass to produce acylated cellulose pulp, hemicellulose, lignin and sugars and fermentation of the sugars


A process for production of c5 and c6 sugar enriched syrups from lignocellulosic biomass and fermentation products therefrom is described. A lignocellulosic biomass is treated with a c1-c2 acid (e.g., acetic acid) with washing thereof with a c1-c2 acid miscible organic solvent, (e.g., ethyl acetate).

Clean sugar and lignin from non-chemically pretreated lignocellulosic biomass


Methods of producing clean (e.g., low sulfur and metal ion content, and free of fermentation inhibitors) sugar and lignin-rich streams, and downstream conversion products, from lignocellulosic biomass, may include obtaining non-chemically pretreated, milled lignocellulosic biomass, reacting the milled lignocellulosic biomass with an enzymatic agent to produce a slurry that includes converted monomeric lignocellulosic sugars and lignin-rich residuals, and separating the slurry into a sugar stream that includes the converted monomeric lignocellulosic sugars and a lignin-rich stream that includes the lignin-rich residuals. The sugar stream, not including water, includes at least 75% monomeric lignocellulosic sugar, less than 0.20% sulfur, and less than 3.0% metal ion content, and the lignin-rich stream includes at least 35% lignin and less than 0.50% sulfur.

Method of producing biofuel using sea algae


The present invention relates to a method of producing biofuel, more specifically a method of producing biofuel comprising the steps of generating monosugars from marine algae, or from polysaccharides extracted from marine algae by treating the marine algae or the polysaccharides with a hydrolytic enzyme and/or a hydrolytic catalyst; and fermenting the monosugars using a microorganism to produce biofuel. The method of producing biofuel of the present invention solve the problem of raw material suppliance since it uses marine algae as a raw material for biomass, and reduce the production costs by excluding lignin eliminating process that has been required by the conventional method using wood-based raw materials, resulting in economic and environmental advantages..

Process for making hmf and hmf derivatives from sugars, with recovery of unreacted sugars suitable for direct fermentation to ethanol


Hydroxymethylfurfural is made from an aqueous hexose sugar solution, especially from a high fructose corn syrup product. By rapidly heating the sugar solution to the elevated temperatures involved as well as rapidly cooling the resultant product mixture, a limited per-pass conversion to hmf is obtained; correspondingly, however, the overall exposure of the hmf that is formed to acidic, elevated temperature conditions is also limited, so that byproducts are reduced.

Process for rapidly screening enzyme and enzyme mixtures for the hydrolysis of ligno-cellulosic biomass


The invention is to a novel method for evaluating the hydrolysis conversion of a enzyme or enzyme mixture relative to a specific ligno-cellulosic biomass. The method evaluates the hydrolysis conversion of a enzyme or enzyme mixture relative to a specific ligno-cellulosic biomass by preparing a pretreated ligno-cellulosic biomass suspension, a buffer solution and an enzyme or enzyme mixture solution; dispensing a portion of one or more of the three components into a plurality of test vials, subjecting one or more of the plurality of test vials to varying incubation periods, reducing the rate of incubation at the end of each incubation period, and analyzing the resulting samples for dissolved sugars to determine the rate of reaction..
