  • Potential applications of lignocellulose-decaying fungi in waste treatment

    Lignocellulose of plant biomass represents the greatest pool of organic carbon on earth. Basidiomyceteous fungi capable of causing different kinds of lignocellulose decay are important biomass recyclers, thereby transforming lignocellulose of plant biomass into soil humus matter. In these organisms, this is done by an extracellular machinery which generates different kinds of strong oxidants, ...

  • Biotransformation of rice straw by Phanerachaete chrysosporium and the related ligninolytic enzymes

    Biotransformation of lignin is related to the biomass utilisation of agricultural wastes. Ligninolytic enzyme from Phanerochaete chrysosporium plays an important role in biodegrading lignin and is specially concerned by researchers. The aim of the study is to optimise the conditions for producing ligninolytic enzymes in solid-state fermentation, and to biotransform the rice straw for the biomass ...

  • Functional analysis of the Myceliophthora thermophila CI xylanase machinery

    Introduction Xylan is, after cellulose, the most abundant biopolymer in the plant kingdom. Its chemical composition and structure is complex and there is large variation between different plant species. Therefore enzymatic degradation or modification of this structure requires many different enzymes. The fungus Myceliophthora thermophila CI produces the complete spectrum of enzymes to ...


  • Paper Pulp by Enzymatic Treatment of Agricultural Residues and Waste Paper

    In the last years non woody plants, and particularly agricultural residues, received an increasing attention as source of fibres for paper mills. Their cell walls allow an efficient biopulping by means of enzymes. By adopting our LINA process, the enzymes are produced efficiently by solid-state fermentation (SSF) of lignocellulosic materials (Giovannozzi Sermanni and Porri, 1989). Therefore an ...


  • 20th Annual Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards highlight biomass- and waste-to-resource technologies

    On July 13, 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the winners of the 20th Annual Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards (PGCCA) and honored them at a ceremony at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. The PGCCAs were created in partnership with the American Chemical ...

  • Converting plant waste into biofuels

    Promising advances using yeast and fungi. Written by Nancy W. Stauffer. You can read the original story in MIT News MIT researchers are genetically engineering yeast to break down stubborn plant fibers into sugars that it can then ferment — a first ...

  • Biofuel - Energy Supplier of the Future?

    Biofuel like biodiesel, plant oil, ethanol, bio methane or the synthetic biomass- to- liquid (BtL)- fuels everyone is talking about them. They are at present the only renewable alternative in the mobility sector and already today make up 6.1 % of the fuel consumption in Germany. However, in the past months and years biofuels had the reputation to generate a social- und environmental dilemma. ...
