Process flowsheets studied for the conversion of sugarcane residues to ethanol. Process I—AFEX™ pretreatment with high solids loading separate enzymatic hydrolysis and fermentation (SHF) of the solids, Process II—Steam explosion followed by solids washing and high solids loading SHF with separate fermentation of the C5-rich liquor, Process III—steam explosion followed by high solids loading SHF of unwashed solids and separate fermentation of the C5-rich liquor, Process IV—steam explosion followed by high solids loading SHF of the whole slurry. HSL high solids loading
