(IN) BAGAÇO DE MALTE Pré-tratamento alcalino e hidrólise enzimática para liberação de glicose a partir de bagaço de malte

Malt bagasse

Alkaline pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis to release glucose from malt bagasse 

APPLICATIONS

  • Companies in the processing sector – agro-industry.

PANORAMA

Alkaline pretreatment process followed by enzymatic hydrolysis for release of glucose from malt bagasse. The alkaline pretreatment promotes biomass delignification, exposing the cellulose fibers, making them accessible to enzymatic action. A maximum conversion of cellulose into glucose (74%) was achieved when sodium hydroxide was used at a concentration of 4% (w/v).

ADVANTAGES

  • Obtaining cellulose with a high degree of purity.
  • Possibility of using residues from the brewing industry.
