Figure 6

Effect of pretreatment temperature on results from combined pretreatment-enzymatic hydrolysis assay for four representative feedstocks. (a) Total xylose release; (b) total xylan yield; (c) total glucose release; (d) total glucan yield, (e) toal sugar release, (f) toal sugar yield. Larger differences in the experimental results among the four representative feedstocks are apparent at a pretreatment temperature of 130°C than at a pretreatment temperature of 150°C.
