Development of Pretreatment of Lignocellulose for Bioenergy

Lihui Gan*, Chao Wang, Kesong You, Yang Yang, Jian Liu* and Minnan Long

The overuse of fossil fuels causes serious shortages problems and environmental issues. Lignocellulosic material is an abundant, inexpensive and carbon-neutral renewable bio resource for the production of biofuel and biobased products. In this commentary, the researches of various pretreatments for enhancing the enzymatic digestions of lignocellulosic materials are introduced. The pretreatment process and its synergistic effects on enzymatic digestion of lignocellulosic materials are discussed. These studies showed that combination of effective pretreatments is a promising strategy for improving enzymatic hydrolysis of biomass.
