From: A novel cost-effective technology to convert sucrose and homocelluloses in sweet sorghum stalks into ethanol

Loading dose (mmol/g dry biomass ) NaOH (g) KOH (g) Ca(OH)2(g)
0.83 0.50 0.70 0.93
1.67 1.00 1.40 1.85
2.50 1.50 2.10 2.80
3.33 2.00 2.80 3.70
4.17 2.50 3.50 4.60
5.00 3.00 4.20 5.60
6.67 4.00 5.60 7.40
  1. The dry mass of sweet sorghum bagasse is 15 g and the water is 250 g in the distillation experiments. NaOH, sodium hydroxide; KOH, potassium hydroxide; Ca(OH)2, calcium hydroxide.
