Anaerobic digestion of lignocellulosic biomasses pretreated with Ceriporiopsis subvermispora

By Xun Liu, Serge Hiligsmann, R. Gourdon and Rémy Bayard


Fungal pretreatment by Ceriporiopsis subvermispora of two forest residues (hazel and acacia branches) and two agricultural lignocellulosic residues (barley straw and sugarcane bagasse) were studied as a pretreatment to improve their subsequent anaerobic digestion for methane production. Biomass samples were grinded to 2 ranges of particle sizes (<4 or 1 mm), autoclaved, inoculated with two strains of C. subvermispora (ATCC 90467 and ATCC 96608) and incubated at 28 °C for 28 days. The effects of fungal pretreatment were assessed by analyzing the samples before and after incubations for dry solids mass, biochemical composition, bio-methane production (BMP) and availability of cellulose to hydrolysis. The production of ligninolytic enzymes MnP and/or laccase was observed with both strains during incubation on most of the samples tested. It almost doubled the hazel branches BMP per unit mass of dry solids but did not improve however the BMP of the agricultural residues and acacia branches. These observations were explained by the fact that although both strains were able to degrade 20–25% of lignin in <1 mm and <4 mm hazel branches samples, none of them was successful however to significantly degrade lignin in the other samples, except for sugarcane bagasse.SCOPUS: ar.jinfo:eu-repo/semantics/publishe
