The Apple pomace left over from the apple pressing process has shown to be a good substrate in the conversion process from cellulosic biomass into fermentable sugars for the production of second generation biofuels such as cellulosic ethanol. This fuel can then be used to replace fossil fuels in the transportation sector. This reaction is analyzed in a bench scale bioreactor, using commercial cellulase enzymes to break down the available cellulose in the apple pomace, wood shavings and swithchgrass feedstocks.
