Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Starch-Containing Crops — Status and Possibilities in the Coming Years

  • Poul B. Poulsen
Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 67)


Production of biomass is the condition of all life on this planet. The basic components in biomass are first of all carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Carbohydrates have the very important task of being both the energy storage and, at the same time, perhaps the most important part of the plant structure.
