Simultaneously improving xylose fermentation and tolerance to lignocellulosic inhibitors through evolutionary engineering of recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae harbouring xylose isomerase
(BioMed Central, 2014-05)
Background: Yeasts tolerant to toxic inhibitors from steam-pretreated lignocellulose with xylose co-fermentation capability represent an appealing approach for 2nd generation ethanol production. Whereas rational ...
Why pursue research projects in an academic environment
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-09)
The pursuit of academic research is internationally considered to be a key deliverable of academic careers, with ever-increasing expectations of demonstrated research capacity and outputs as a means to substantiate ...
Multi-product biorefineries from lignocelluloses : a pathway to revitalisation of the sugar industry?
(BioMed Central, 2017-04-11)
Background Driven by a range of sustainability challenges, e.g. climate change, resource depletion and expanding populations, a circular bioeconomy is emerging and expected to evolve progressively in the coming decades. ...
Techno-economic comparison of ethanol and electricity coproduction schemes from sugarcane residues at existing sugar mills in Southern Africa
(BioMed Central, 2014-07)
Background: The economics of producing only electricity from residues, which comprise of surplus bagasse and 50% post-harvest residues, at an existing sugar mill in South Africa was compared to the coproduction of ...
Techno-economics of integrating bioethanol production from spent sulfite liquor for reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from sulfite pulping mills
(BioMed Central, 2014-12)
Background Flow sheet options for integrating ethanol production from spent sulfite liquor (SSL) into the acid-based sulfite pulping process at the Sappi Saiccor mill (Umkomaas, South Africa) were investigated, including ...
