Table 2 Initial phenols, glucose, and xylose, and maximum ethanol concentration and ethanol yield

From: Fed-batch SSCF using steam-exploded wheat straw at high dry matter consistencies and a xylose-fermenting Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain: effect of laccase supplementation

Liquid fraction (equivalent % (w/v)) Phenolsini(g/L) EtOHmax(g/L) Glucoseini(g/L) Xyloseini(g/L) YE/S(g/g)a
12% DM Untreated 4.2 3.7 3.7 11.4 0.25b
  Laccase 0.8 4.2 4.1 11.1 0.28b
  1. aEthanol yield based on total sugars measured prior to fermentation; bno statistically significant differences. Fermentation of liquid fraction with an inoculum size of 5 g/L. DM, dry matter; EtOH, ethanol; ini, initial; max, maximum.
