Abstract

Hydrogen peroxide and CO2 effects on the hydrothermal degradation of biomass are examined using a semibatch reactor. Woody biomass is acquired from Japanese cedar and Japanese zelkova. Cellobiose is also studied as a model biomass. The effects on the sugar yield and the fermentation inhibitor yield are discussed. Hydrogen peroxide decreases the cellulose and hemicellulose decomposition temperature, whereas CO2 exhibits a limited effect on their decomposition.
