Conventional and Alternative Strategies of Pretreatment of Chili Postharvest Residue for the Production of Different Value-Added Products
- 12 Downloads
Agricultural and crop residues serve as a renewable source for the production of bioethanol and other value-added chemicals. The residue which is left out after harvesting chili from chili plants constitute chili postharvest residue (CPHR). It is an abundant, inexpensive, and readily available source of renewable lignocellulosic biomass. Presently this is considered as a waste and disposed by burning after harvest. Hence this could be a viable biomass for second-generation biofuel production as well as for the production of other value-added products like biopolymer and industrial enzymes. Similar to other lignocellulosic biomass, chili postharvest residue also requires some kind of pretreatment for better enzymatic saccharification of cellulose by enzymes. The objective of the present study was to evaluate pretreatment liquor as well as the enzymatically saccharified biomass for second-generation biofuel, xylanase and biopolymer production.
