Microbial glycoside hydrolases for biomass utilization in biofuels application

Abstract
Renewable biomass is predicted to have the potential to meet at least a quarter of the world demand for transportation fuel, but to do so both terrestrial lignocellulosic as well as marine algal resources need to be efficiently utilized. In the processes where these biomasses are converted to different types of energy-carriers (for example fuel alcohols e.g. ethanol or butanol) microbial glycoside hydrolases have a role in the saccharification process. During saccharification polymeric carbohydrate resources (e.g. starch, cellulose or hemicellulose) are hydrolysed into mono and oligosaccharides that can be utilized by the organism selected to ferment these carbohydrates into the desired energy-carrier. This chapter aims to shed light on... (More)
Renewable biomass is predicted to have the potential to meet at least a quarter of the world demand for transportation fuel, but to do so both terrestrial lignocellulosic as well as marine algal resources need to be efficiently utilized. In the processes where these biomasses are converted to different types of energy-carriers (for example fuel alcohols e.g. ethanol or butanol) microbial glycoside hydrolases have a role in the saccharification process. During saccharification polymeric carbohydrate resources (e.g. starch, cellulose or hemicellulose) are hydrolysed into mono and oligosaccharides that can be utilized by the organism selected to ferment these carbohydrates into the desired energy-carrier. This chapter aims to shed light on different processing alternatives for the conversion of lignocellulose or algal starch into mono or oligosaccharides, and what roles the microbial glycoside hydrolases have as processing aids in these conversions.
