Title: A METHOD OF OBTAINING USEFUL MATERIAL FROM PLANT BIOMASS WASTE
Abstract:
A method of obtaining useful material from plant biomass waste. The method uses sonication and/or microwave irradiation followed by sequential incubation with mixed fungal cultures. In particular, the method involves obtaining useful material from plant biomass waste comprising the steps of: a) subjecting the biomass waste to microwave irradiation and/or sonication; b) incubating the biomass waste from step a) with one or more enzymes extracted from Basidiomycete fungi; and c) incubating the biomass waste from step b) with one or more enzymes extracted from Ascomycete fungi.
