Susceptibility of pretreated wood sections of Norway spruce (Picea abies) clones to enzymatic hydrolysis
Abstract:The structure of softwoods, which confers resistance to degradation through hydrolysis and decay, currently limits their use for the production of biofuels. However, since wood is very heterogeneous, it is possible that differences in wood properties within and between trees could differentially affect its processability. In this research, heartwood (inner) and sapwood (outer) from Norway spruce (
