Biopolymer Feed Stock Challenges & Opportunities

Bio related products are to replace petroleum-related products, new methodologies, where various types of lignocellulosic biomass undergo bioprocessing to commercially important products, must be devised. A relatively low value lignocellulosic biomass that could be utilized to produce bio based co-products is grass. Currently, many grasses are largely utilized for grazing by livestock or harvested as hay. To exploit this opportunity, the feasibility of using microbial bioconversion to produce chemicals and polysaccharide gums from the fermentable sugars present in hydrolysates of various grass species. The best production of 2.5 g/l was obtained when the cells were grown on medium containing 70 mM sucrose and 0.2% (w/v) Casamino Acids. It enriched medium is maximum biopolymer production of up to 3.4 g/laws was obtained.

Diminishing fossil fuel resources as well as growing environmental and energy security concerns, in parallel with growing demands on raw materials and energy, have intensified global efforts to utilize wood biopolymers as a renewable resource to produce biofuels and biomaterials. Wood is one of the most abundant biopolymer composites on earth that can be converted into biofuels as well as used as a platform to produce bio-based materials. The major biopolymers in wood are cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin. These polymers are generally associated with each other in wood cell walls resulting in an intricate and dynamic cell wall structure.
