Cellulosic ethanol production potential from bagasse of elite sugarcane varieties/clones [Full subscriber]

Abstract Sugarcane is one of the most efficient crops for generation of liquid biofuels. In addition to juice, bagasse represents an additional abundant lignocellulosic biomass that has great potential to increase ethanol production from this crop. To achieve efficient conversion of sugarcane bagasse into ethanol, various components that affect recalcitrance of bagasse as well as generation of fermentable sugars from it need to be studied. In the present study, bagasse of 29 sugarcane clones/varieties were analyzed for total solids, moisture content, ethanol extractives, and different cell wall components. Among all sugarcane varieties/clones studied, commercial sugarcane variety CoPb 92 variety was…
