Summary, etc.:
This report describes one potential conversion process to hydrocarbon products by way of biological conversion of lingnocellulosic-derived sugars. The process design converts biomass to a hydrocarbon intermediate, a free fatty acid, using dilute-acid pretreatment, enzymatic saccharification, and bioconversion. Ancillary areas--feed handling, hydrolysate conditioning, product recovery and upgrading (hydrotreating) to a final blendstock material, wastewater treatment, lignin combustion, and utilities--are also included in the design.
