Featured article: Japanese scientists achieved 30 g/L bioethanol from 100 g/L rice straw

New Content Item Professor Kazuhiro Hoshino’s group at Toyama University successfully achieved a total fermentable sugar of 75.3 g/L by enzymatic hydrolysis of alkali-treated rice straw using an optimized cellulase cocktail, with a hydrolysis efficiency of 94.1%. Simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF) of 100 g/L treated rice straw with the optimal cocktail and a xylose-fermenting fungus (Mucor circinelloides) under aerobic condition resulted in a titer of 30.5 g/L ethanol after 36 h.

Aims and scope

Bioresources and Bioprocessing (BIOB) is a peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen. BIOB aims at providing an international academic platform for exchanging views on and promoting research to support bioresource development, processing and utilization in a sustainable manner. As an application-oriented research journal, BIOB covers not only the application and management of bioresource technology but also the design and development of bioprocesses that will lead to new and sustainable production processes.

BIOB publishes original and review articles on most topics relating to bioresource and bioprocess engineering, including:

  • Biochemical and microbiological engineering
  • Biocatalysis and biotransformation
  • Biosynthesis and metabolic engineering
  • Bioprocess and biosystems engineering
  • Bioenergy and biorefinery
  • Cell culture and biomedical engineering
  • Food, agricultural and marine biotechnology
  • Bioseparation and biopurification engineering
  • Bioremediation and environmental biotechnology
