Abstract

In enzymatic hydrolysis, high lignocellulose loadings are required to obtain high sugar titers. However, the high solids loadings limit enzymatic hydrolysis. In this study, to overcome this limitation, the promoting and synergistic effects of the accessory agents of hemicellulase (i.e., Cellic HTec2) and polyethylene glycol (PEG) 8000 were investigated in the enzymatic hydrolysis of hydrothermally pretreated empty fruit bunches (EFBs). After the optimal addition of Cellic HTec2 and PEG, high enzymatic digestion of the pretreated EFBs was achieved owing to their synergistic effects, even at high solids loadings. For example, the enzymatic digestibility of pretreated EFBs at a 21.7% (w/v) solids loading with 10 FPU of Cellic CTec2/g glucan reached 72.5% when 2.7 mg of Cellic HTec2/g glucan and 62.5 mg of PEG/g glucan were used as the accessory agents. These results suggested that the optimal addition of accessory agents is effective for the enhanced hydrolysis of lignocellulose using even a commercial cellulase preparation.
