Developing of process for increased ethanol production using filamentous fungi
Start date: 2017-05-01
End date: 2019-01-01
There is also potential to use other lignocellulosic raw materials, such as straw or wood-based materials. In order to make the concept economical feasible, several risks and uncertainties must be reduced. It will mainly be achieved by increased robustness of the cultivation, optimized integration with existing production and increased knowledge of the interaction between substrate and fungi. The project results can be used as a basis for commercialization in existing starch - and sugar based ethanol plants. For Lantmännen Agroetanol, a full-scale commercialization is achievable in 2020 with up to 5000m3 of ethanol/year.
