The pretreated biomass was hydrolyzed using Cellulase enzyme extracted from fungi Aspergillus niger by growing them in mineral salt medium containing NaOH pre-treated corn cobs
Production and in vitro evaluation of xylooligosaccharides generated from corn cobs
The maximum mycelia growth was recorded on corn cob
Among agricultural resources (wastes) corn cobs
are regarded as a promising agricultural resource for microbial xylitol production because corn is widely cultivated and corn cobs
are rich in hemicelluoses but are not effectively utilized.
Mr Hansen said: "The first and second pieces of that plan involve using corn cobs
and light stover.
Right out of high school, I worked as a lab assistant, evaluating methane uptake rates for activated carbon made from waste corn cobs
We've had a few corn cobs

Made with recycled corn cobs
, peach pits, and walnut shells all of which have natural abrasives--the scrubbers allow people to clean with less or no detergent at all.

and switchgrass," he said.
Almost anything can be grilled on a BBQ - corn cobs
, peppers, tomatoes, aubergines and large mushrooms can be cooked directly on the grid.
Project leader Peter Pfeifer and colleagues have successfully shrunk the size of vehicle natural gas tanks--which are often large and unwieldy--by storing natural gas at low pressure in carbon briquettes made from corn cobs
after the kernels have been harvested.
