Vittorio Mori As I mentioned before, the use of cellolosic substrates involves a preliminary step of "pre-treatment" with enzymes such as cellulase. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cellulase). Check this video (minute 2:50 onward) to get an idea of the process: they ...Mehr anzeigen
 
Vittorio Mori Wood is whole another story, in a word, no it's really too difficult to use it as a substrate, not worth the trouble. The energy you'd need to chip it to small chunks, hydrolize it, treat it with enzymes ad finally put it into the digester is far more than the energy you'll get from it. The best/cleanest energetic use of wood is gasification trough pyrolysis.

Thomas Gram Hard biomass is optimal for gasification, though. With the right catalysts, syngas (the mix of hydrogen and carbon monoxide resulting from gasification) can replace petroleum for most applications.
