This paper presents the performance and economics of the ABFX process that can achieve the goal of simple, economical, and benign biomass pretreatment for bioenergy production. The research used grass silage and screened manure solids as the biomass substrate. The research was able to establish a conceptual model of the ABFX process and the relationship between the variables. The effects of pretreatment on the degradability of biomass and gas production were established.(Download PDF) (Export to EndNotes)
