Abstract:This project tested for cellulosic ethanol production from BC Mountain Pine Beetle killed Pinus Ponderosa by acid hydrolysis, steam explosion and fermentation. Ethanol yield was measured by the mass loss of samples over a four-day period, Bromothymol Blue acid indicator and aroma. The experiment results showed all feedstocks produced ethanol, with the green pine needles producing the most.
