Green fuels and chemicals: The enzymatic digestibility of cellulose in lignocellulosic biomass towards fermentable glucose can be increased significantly by hydrothermal pretreatment in pure water under relatively mild conditions. Appropriate selection of the pretreatment temperature and time also leads to a process liquid that can be enriched in xylose or in furfural and acetic acid.
