  • Publication number: 20150315622
    Abstract: The invention relates to methods of saccharifying a cellulosic material comprising subjecting the cellulosic material to a cellulolytic enzyme composition and a GH61 polypeptide, and optionally a catalase in the presence of dissolved oxygen at a concentration in the range of 0.5 to 10% of the saturation level. The invention also related to methods of producing desired fermentation products, such as ethanol, using a method including a saccharification step of the invention.

  • Publication number: 20140147895
    Abstract: The present invention relates to processes for pre-treating cellulosic material and processes for improving hydrolysis thereof. In particular, cellulosic material such as woody biomass is contacted with one or more enzymes in a re-pulping step. The cellulosic material is then contacted with one or more enzymes to improve hydrolysis of the cellulosic material. The hydrolysis is also enzymatically enhanced by use of an amylase and/or mannanase.
