CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A process for producing a hydrolyzed product from a lignocellulose-containing material, comprising the steps of: (a) pre-treating a lignocellulose-containing material;(b) hydrolyzing the pre-treated lignocellulose-containing material to form a hydrolyzate; and(c) enzymatically sulfating phenolic compounds produced during step a) and/or step b).

DESCRIPTION

TECHNICAL FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to the production of hydrolyzates from a lignocellulose-containing material, and to fermentation of the hydrolyzates. More specifically, the present invention relates to the detoxification of phenolic inhibitors and toxins formed during the processing of lignocellulose-containing material by sulfating the phenolic inhibitors and toxins.
