Figure 4

Hydrolysis yields for alkali-extracted corn stover as a function of alkaline pre-extraction condition. Post-treatment was performed and 25 mg H2O2 /g biomass, (A) 15 mg protein/g glucan enzyme loading, (B) 10 mg protein/g glucan enzyme loading, and (C) 5 mg protein/g glucan enzyme loading. Extraction was performed at 10% (w/v) solids and 80°C for 1 h with 100% displacement of pre-extraction liquor with distilled water following pre-extraction.
