Addition of Biomass Hemicellulose into Hardwood Pulps to Improve Properties, 2016 Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling, Sustainability (PEERS) Conference Proceedings
Agricultural residues such as corn stover, represents an inexpensive, pentosan‐rich feedstock available in abundance, are being considered for biofuels and bioproducts. These materials are typically pretreated to make them more amenable to fermentation. One such treatment involves extraction using alkali to remove the hemicellulose leaving the cellulose accessible for hydrolysis. Extracted xylan hemicellulose may be considered for use in pulp and paper, or for providing a potential value stream from cellulosic ethanol biorefineries. To be useful, the extracted xylan must be concentrated and adsorbed into the pulp using existing or minimal new unit operations.
