BARLEY STRAW ACIDIC HYDROLYSIS KINETICS
In the brewery process only the soluble carbohydrates of the barley grain are used. The lignocellulosic material (straw) remains as a residue. In this wok the barley straw was hydrolyzed to obtain fermentable sugars, using a batch reactor. Operating conditions of the reactor were: acid concentration 1%, hydrolysis time (o to 330 min) and temperature (80 to 160°C). The hydrolysis of barley straw was described by a pseudo first order kinetic model.
