Abstract

The effect of mechanical treatment at various temperatures on structural changes in polymers contained in highly lignified plant feedstock was studied by the example of reed stems. The optimal conditions (about 10°C) of mechanical activation of plant feedstock were determined, under which its structure is disordered enough for subsequent enzymatic hydrolysis, but the lignin decomposition is prevented, and so is the formation of a layer of substances inhibiting enzymes on the surface of particles.
