Countercurrent Conversion of Biomass to Sugars
MetadataShow full item record
Our goal was to research and implement a countercurrent system to run enzymatic saccharification of biomass. The project provided clear results to show that this method is more efficient than the batch process that companies currently employ. Excess time, materials, and money are spent on the batch process because, until now, it has been the most efficient way to produce sugars needed in the food, chemical, and fuel industries. Due to the success of our project, we hope companies will utilize continuous countercurrent saccharification.
