Efficient and sustainable cellulosic biofuels production via novel laser technique [Full subscriber]

Production of cellulosic biofuels is a complex process requiring separation of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin from lignonocellulosic feedstocks and then hydrolysing the former two to produce sugars which are then fermented into alcohol. Researchers from Japan have developed a new laser technique for breaking up cellulose with ease to facilitate cellulosic biofuels production.…
