    Description

    This study evaluated batch fermentation modes, namely, separate hydrolysis and fermentation (SHF), quasi-simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (Q-SSF), and simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF), and fermentation conditions, i.e., enzyme and yeast loadings, nutrient supplementation and sterilization, on high titer bioethanol production from SPORL-pretreated Douglas-fir forest residue without detoxification. The results indicated that Q-SSF and SSF were obviously superior to SHF operation in terms of ethanol yield. Enzyme loading had a strong positive correlation with ethanol yield in the range studied. Nutrient supplementation and sterility were not necessary for ethanol production from SPORL-pretreated Douglas-fir. Yeast loading had no substantial influence on ethanol yield for typical SSF conditions. After 96 h fermentation at 38 C on shake flask at 150 rpm, terminal ethanol titer of 43.2 g/L, or 75.1% theoretical based on untreated feedstock glucan, mannan, and xylan content was achieved, when SSF was conducted at whole slurry solids loading of 15% with enzyme and yeast loading of 20 FPU/g glucan and 1.8g/kg (wet), respectively, without nutrition supplementation and sterilization. It is believed that with mechanical mixing, enzyme loading can be reduced without reducing ethanol yield with extended fermentation duration.
