Title (EN) PROCESS AND APPARATUS FOR CONVERSION OF BIOMASS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREILLAGE POUR LA CONVERSION DE BIOMASSE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention is directed to a process for the conversion of cellulosic biomass, in particular lignocellulose-containing biomass into fermentable sugars. The invention is further directed to apparatus suitable for carrying out such processes. According to the invention biomass is converted into fermentable sugars by contacting in a reactor said biomass with an acid, while passing an inert gas stream capable of taking up water through said reactor, by which the pH in said reactor can be controlled.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un procédé de conversion de biomasse cellulosique, en particulier de biomasse contenant de la lignocellulose, en sucres fermentables. La présente invention concerne en outre un appareillage adapté à la mise en œuvre d’une tel procédé. Selon l'invention, la biomasse est convertie en sucres fermentables par mise en contact, au sein d'un réacteur, de ladite biomasse et d'un acide, tout en faisant passer un courant de gaz inerte transportant de l'eau au travers dudit réacteur, le pH dans ledit réacteur pouvant ainsi être contrôlé.
