Technology Center of Tecnicas Reunidas through Work Package 2 of EcoLASTANE project, has developed an efficient hydrolysis process of hemicellulose from different types of lignocellulosic biomass like almond shells, pine sawdust and miscanthus. A suitable combination of pH, temperature and reaction time in soft conditions has allowed obtaining liquid samples in high yields of pentoses preventing the subsequent conversion to furfural. On the other hand, this process produces an isolated solid fraction rich in cellulose and lignin that is suitable…
