Bruce E Dale, Farzaneh Teymouri, Shishir Chundawat, Venkatesh Balan: Process for enzymatically converting a plant biomass. Board of Trustees of Michigan State University, Ian C McLeod, IAN C McLEOD PC, February 12, 2009: US20090042259-A1

The present invention describes a process for at least a 90% conversion of a plant biomass preferably by a reduction of the units of cellulase needed and by using a xylanase which acts synergistically with the cellulase to improve the yield of xylose and glucose as sugars. The process enables greate ...
