Title: METHOD FOR PREPARING MONOSACCHARIDE SUGARS FROM SOLID URBAN WASTE
Abstract:
The invention generally relates to systems and methods for forming monosaccharides from a mixture of solid waste. An integrated process is provided for classifying a mixture of solid waste in order to generate a number of flows rich in recyclable materials, including one or more flows of plastic and a flow of bio-waste enriched with cellulosic compounds and comprising unfermentable components. The flow of bio-waste is pre-treated in pressurised conditions and at an increased temperature, and same is then brought into contact with a source of enzymes comprising cellulase, in which a certain portion of the unfermentable material present in the mixture of solid waste is removed from the process using wet classification methods during or after the enzymatic hydrolysis.
