Abstract [en]

Efficient sorbents for the removal of cationic dye were prepared from sugarcane bagasse (stalk) and straw (leaves) by oxidative pre-treatment with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in acetic acid. The effects of variables, such as concentration of H2O2, temperature and time on the properties of the fiber sorbents obtained were studied according to a 2(3) full-factorial design. For comparison, an oxidative treatment of sugarcane biomass with glacial acetic acid was also used. The yields of the materials obtained and their chemical composition were characterized and compared. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, field-emission scanning electron microscopy and benzene vapor adsorption were used to investigate the structural properties and morphology of the initial materials and sorbents. The sorption of methylene blue dye was used to assess the efficiency of dye removal by the sorbents. The pre-treatment conditions significantly affected the sorbent yield, their chemical composition (contents of cellulose, lignin and ash) as well as their sorption properties. The cellulosic sorbent (C-sorbent) from sugarcane bagasse obtained by pre-treatment with H2O2 in acetic acid and the lignocellulosic sorbent (LC-sorbent) from sugarcane straw obtained by pre-treatment with glacial acetic acid, had the highest sorption capacity for the methylene blue dye. For both types of sorbents, the sorption capacity increased with chemical pretreatment as a result of an increase in pore volume.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was evaluating polysulfides (PS) as additives in kraft cooking of wood mixtures eucalypt (E) and pine chips (P) wood mixtures, namely: 50E/50P, 70E/30P, and 90E/10P. Bleaching (O(D/A)(EP)D) and refining of pulps were also investigated. The PS addition (1.5 or 3.0%) to the kraft cooking preserved the hemicelluloses resulting increased pulp yield and reduced H-factor. The oxygen delignification was more efficient for chip mixtures containing higher proportion of pine chips, but was not largely affected by the addition of PS. The bleach chemical consumption was not significantly influenced by PS dosage or by the wood chip mixture. The burst and tear indexes were improved by increasing the proportion of pine chips to the mixture, but an opposite effect was observed for refinability, tensile index, and opacity. The kraft-PS pulps showed increased refinability, tensile, and burst strengths in relation the standard pulps, but lower opacities.

Abstract [en]

This paper investigated the impact of the amounts of lignin and hemicelluloses on cellulose nanofibers (CNFs). Birch and spruce wood were used to prepare holocellulose and cellulose samples by classical methods. To better assess the effect of the chemical composition on the CNF performance and simplify the process for CNF preparation, no surface derivatization method was applied for CNF preparation. Increased amounts of hemicelluloses, especially mannans, improved the defibration process, the stability of the CNFs and the mechanical properties, whereas the residual lignin content had no significant effect on these factors. On the other hand, high lignin content turned spruce nanopapers yellowish and, together with hemicelluloses, reduced the strain-at-break values. Finally, when no surface derivatization was applied to holocellulose and cellulose samples before defibration, the controlled preservation of residual lignin and hemicelluloses on the CNFs indicate to be crucial for the process. This simplified method of CNF preparation presents great potential for forest-based industries as a way to use forestry waste (e.g., branches, stumps, and sawdust) to produce CNFs and, consequently, diversify the product range and reach new markets.

Abstract [en]

The improvement caused by eucalypt chip impregnation on kraft pulping performance was assessed for terminating the cook at kappa in the range of 15-27 and at controlled residual effective alkali (REA) of 6-8 g/L NaOH. Extended impregnation cooking of eucalypt chips (EIC) increased about 10/0 lignin- and HexA-free screen yield gains in relation to conventional cooking (CC), regardless of kappa number in the range of 15-27. The EIC technology allows for cooking eucalypt wood to kappa number up to 27, without rejects production, but without significant improvement in lignin- and HexA-free screen yield and with larger chlorine dioxide (ClO2) consume during bleaching. The optimum kappa number for both CC and EIC cooking was about 19 with similar refinability and strength properties for both technologies, CC and EIC. It was concluded that extended impregnation cooking is an attractive technique for enhancing bleached eucalypt Kraft pulp yield.

Abstract [en]

Hydrothermal and acid pretreatments using different acid charges (1.5%, 3.0%, and 4.5% H2SO4) were proposed for eucalyptus, sugarcane bagasse, and sugarcane straw prior to their bioconversion into ethanol using the semi-simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSSF) process. The hydrothermal and acid pretreatments were efficient for hemicelluloses removal from eucalyptus (63 to 96%), bagasse (25 to 98%), and straw (23 to 95%) and to remove a substantial amount of lignin from eucalyptus (10 to 34%) and bagasse (10 to 27%). During pretreatments, pseudo-extractives and pseudo-lignin were generated from biomasses. The SSSF was performed in pretreated biomasses using 24 h presaccharification followed by an additional 10 h of simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF). With hydrothermal pretreatment, the eucalyptus presented the highest ethanol production, but only low values for SSSF parameters were obtained, as follows: ethanol yield (0.017 g(ethanol)/g(biomass)), volumetric productivity of ethanol (0.16 g L-1 h(-1)), and ethanol concentration (1.6 g L-1). On the other hand, using acid pretreatment, the straw (pretreated using 4.5% H2SO4) presented the highest ethanol production among the biomasses, assessed based on ethanol yield (0.056 g(ethanol)/g(biomass)), volumetric productivity of ethanol (0.51 g L-1 h(-1)), and ethanol concentration (5.1 g L-1).
