    • Fermentation of lignocellulosic biomass using ultrasonic pretreatment 

      Schabort, C.J.; Faul, C.; Nagel, M.; Marx, S. (ETA-Florence Renewable Energies, 2014)
      The potential fermentation of the sugars derived from water hyacinth, sweet sorghum bagasse and amaranth using indirect ultrasonic pretreatment, was investigated. The optimum sugar and ethanol yield for the ultrasonic bath ...
    • Fuel ethanol production from sweet sorghum bagasse using microwave irradiation 

      Marx, S.; Chiyanzu, I.; Ndaba, B.; Schabort, C.J. (ETA-Florence Renewable Energies, 2013)
      Sweet sorghum is a hardy crop that can be grown on marginal land and can provide both food and energy in an integrated food and energy system. Lignocellulose rich sweet sorghum bagasse (solid left over after starch and ...
    • 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% ...
