From: Enzymatic lignocellulose hydrolysis: Improved cellulase productivity by insoluble solids recycling

Figure 7

Enzyme productivity over the response surface experiment on PCS2. 72 hr reaction time between recycles, initial 15% TS substrate loading, and 51.4 mg EP/g cellulose initial enzyme loading. Reaction conditions varied by the fraction of insoluble solids recycled (%), and the amount of makeup enzyme added per gram cellulose added with each recycle (mg EP/g). Values are averages of duplicate experiments. Error bars are ± one standard deviation of 6 center point experiments. The red line represents the productivity of the 72 hour hydrolysis yield with no recycle and 51.4 mg EP/g cellulose. Roman letters a-d indicate significantly different values by ANOVA (95% confidence intervals, pooled standard deviation 0.0027 (N=22)).
