Title
(EN) PROCESS FOR PRODUCING VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS FROM BIOMASS MATERIAL
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION DE COMPOSÉS ORGANIQUES VOLATILS À PARTIR D'UNE MATIÈRE DE BIOMASSE
Abstract
(EN) Embodiments of the present invention provide for efficient and economical production and recovery of ethanol or other volatile organic compounds, such as acetic acid, from solid biomass material, particularly on a larger scale, such as on the commercialization or industrial scale. According to one aspect of the invention, the method comprises (a) generating at least about 10 tons of prepared biomass material by adding a microbe, optionally an acid, and optionally, an enzyme to a solid biomass; (b) storing the prepared biomass material for at least about 24 hours in a storage facility to allow production of at least one volatile organic compound from at least a portion of the sugar in the solid biomass; and (c) capturing the at least one volatile organic compound by using a solventless recovery system.
(FR) Des modes de réalisation de la présente invention concernent les production et récupération efficaces et économiques d'éthanol ou autres composés organiques volatils, tels que l'acide acétique, à partir d'une matière de biomasse solide, en particulier à une plus grande échelle, comme à l'échelle de commercialisation ou l'échelle industrielle. Selon un aspect de l'invention, le procédé comprend (a) la génération d'au moins environ 10 tonnes de matière de biomasse préparée par l'addition d'un microbe, facultativement d'un acide et facultativement d'une enzyme à une biomasse solide; (b) le stockage de la matière de biomasse préparée pendant au moins environ 24 heures dans une installation de stockage pour permettre la production d'au moins un composé organique volatil à partir d'au moins une partie du sucre dans la biomasse solide; et (c) la capture du ou des composés organiques volatils à l'aide d'un système de récupération exempt de solvant.
