Steam Explosion Method – Opportunities for Application in Pretreatment of Lignocellulosic Biomass for Biogas Conversion

Sławomir Kurpaska , Paweł Kiełbasa , Zygmunt Sobol , Stanisław Kokoszka


The paper presents the results of experiments on the use of an innovative method involving the disruption of lignocellulosic fibers of the substrate used for the production of biogas. Describes and shows the process conditions for the biogas-based substrate obtained from agricultural production, food processing industry, some municipal wastes. On the basis of the literature review, the devices used to produce second generation biogas were discussed. The process of biogas production in this technology assumes the use of lignocellulosic raw materials, which are agricultural, forest, communal or post-crop production residues. Discusses the essence of the process and the results achieved in the bioconversion biogas or ethanol. Presents figures on potential raw material resources dedicated to this technology. The work also includes schemes of solutions used in this technology.
