The evaluation of the impact of pretreatment conditions on glucose and xylose yield from sugarcane bagasse, cane leaf matter (CLM) and a bagasse: CLM mixture (1:1 w/w). a Steam explosion sugar yield as a function of pretreatment severity. Enzymatic hydrolysis performed at 2% (w/v) WIS loading and incubated 50 °C, for 72 h using 22 mg CTec2 and 11 mg HTec2. b AFEX™ sugar yield as a function of temperature, ammonia loading, water loading and residence time. Enzymatic hydrolysis performed at 1% (w/v) glucan loading and incubated 50 °C, for 72 h using 10 mg CTec3 and 5 mg HTec3.
