Abstract: Due to its fast‐growing and high carbohydrate content, Napier grass has a great potential to be chosen as a raw material for renewable energy production. The Napier grass after different pretreatments was tested for simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF) with dried yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and cellulase (CTec2) to produce ethanol. For alkaline pretreatment, the grass was incubated with 10% NaOH at a ratio of 1:20 (w/v) at 90°C for 1 hour. For dilute acid pretreatment, the grass was soaked… Show more

“…In addition, the time required for the SSF process is shorter, leading to a higher productivity [28]. SSF has been widely investigated for ethanol production from various biomass, including Napier grass [29], cornstalks [30], and cogongrass [31]. However, no reports have been found for its use on microalgal biomass for hydrogen production.…”

“…However, the utilisation of biomass resources for electricity, biofuel, or biogas generation has not been extensively utilised or studied in most African countries [9][10][11]. From the different lignocellulosic materials currently available in Nigeria, Napier grass has been reported to be a particularly attractive feedstock for production of biofuels and bio-based products mainly due to its high cellulose content (34.2-40%), high yields per unit area, tolerance to drought, and a good water use efficiency (ratio of water used by the crop to water lost by evapotranspiration) [12][13][14][15][16][17].Napier grass is a perennial C4 plant endemic to Sub-Saharan Africa with a high heating value biomass (16.58 MJ/kg) [18]. This crop is mainly used to feed cattle, but it can also be used for grazing, silage, or hay production or fish food [15].…”

“…While annual dry matter yields of 13~21 t/ha have been obtained from some traditional agricultural wastes, yields of Arundo donax L. have reached 30~40 t/ha. These values are similar to that of energy crops such as Pennisetum grass (0~50.2 t/ha) and miscanthus (27~38 t/ha) [9][10][11]. Given its high yield, low cost, and environmentally benign production, Arundo donax L. is considered as a potential candidate for biofuel production, and hence, it was chosen as a substrate in this study to investigate its potential for bioconversion.…”
