Table 3 Glucose and xylose recovery after enzymatic hydrolysis of raw sugarcane bagasse (SCB), of ensiled sugarcane bagasse (ESCB), or of the solid fraction from hydrothermal pretreated sugarcane bagasse (HTT SCB) or hydrothermal pretreated ensiled sugarcane bagasse (HTT ESCB)

From: Combined ensiling and hydrothermal processing as efficient pretreatment of sugarcane bagasse for 2G bioethanol production

  1. aGlucose or xylose recovery yield expressed as glucose or xylose recovered in % of glucose or xylose equivalents in the solid fibers used in the enzymatic hydrolysis process
  2. bOverall glucose or xylose recovery yield is the glucose or xylose obtained from the raw material after pretreatment (if used) and enzymatic hydrolysis, expressed in g of glucose or xylose per g of raw material
