    • Enhancement of bio-methane production by lignocellulose substrates 

      Mliswa, Vuyo; Marx, Sanette; Chiyanzu, Idan (ETA-Florence Renewable Energies, 2015)
      In this study, water hyacinth, sweet sorghum bagasse and amaranth stems were used in a pig manure matrix to produce biogas with a high methane content. The anaerobic digestion was monitored over a period of 40 days, after ...
    • Ultrasonic assisted amaranth stem pretreatment for bio-ethanol production 

      Chiyanzu, Idan; Mditshwa, Amanda; Marx, Sanette (ETA-Florence Renewable Energies, 2015)
      An investigation was undertaken to determine the effect of ultrasound on enzymatic hydrolysis rate and enhanced bioethanol yields. Compositional analysis of the feedstock reveals that amaranth lignocellulose contains 36.35% ...
