A setup for studying the biocatalytic conversion of products from the processing of nonwood raw materials

  • I. N. Pavlov


An innovative setup (fermenter) for studying biocatalytic conversions of the products from processing renewable cellulose-containing raw materials is developed and manufactured. The setup is tested in the enzymatic hydrolysis of the Russian miscanthus cellulose pulp. The final results (the dependence of the concentration of the reducing substances in the hydrolysate on the duration of enzymatic hydrolysis) completely reproduce those obtained earlier on laboratory equipment. Digestion of the obtained hydrolysate performed in parallel in the laboratory and in the fermenter also produces similar results. The setup for preparing enzymatic hydrolysates suitable for use as substrates in the production of bioethanol and bacterial cellulose and the possibility of scaling the volumes of the processes of biocatalytic transformation thus prove promising.
