Thermochemical Conversion Process of Producing Ethanol
This process route includes production of syngas using gasification of the biomass, and fermentation or catalytic synthesis of the syngas to produce ethanol.
The process begins with biomass gasification where, under a controlled oxygen supply, cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin are converted to synthesis gas (syngas), primarily CO, CO2, and H2.
This syngas can be converted into ethanol either through fermentation or through catalytic synthesis.
