The HCH-1 model of enzymatic cellulose hydrolysis



Solka Floc BW200 was enzymatically hydrolyzed in a batch reactor using a commercial cellulase preparation. A total of 50 different hydrolysis conditions were run within a 10-fold range in enzyme concentration and a 30-fold range in cellulose concentration. The data were evaluated in three ways using five different models. Previous literature models were not as successful in correlating the data as the HCH-1 Model derived in this work.
