Publisher: Elsevier


This work was focused on evaluating two mixtures of lignocellulosic feedstock, forest and marginal land resources, in order to co-produce solid biofuel, oligosaccharides, and glucose under a biorefinery concept. The selection of renewable bio-mixtures was based on different criteria, namely, territorial distribution, fire risk during summer months and total sugar content. The two mixtures were submitted to autohydrolysis pretreatment under non-isothermal conditions (in the range of 190 °C - 240 °C corresponding to severity of 3.71–4.82). Both mixtures were compared in terms of fractionation (c ...
