INTRODUCTION. For many years, cellulosic-ethanol has been considered as an alternative to fossil and non-cellulosic fuels. However, the operational challenges and the lack of understanding of this process often results in poorly operated fermentations that limit their potential to compete with non-cellulosic fuels. OBJECTIVE. This project aims at implementing spectroscopic-based real-time monitoring methods and to combine them with mechanistic models to predict the dynamics of cellulose-to-ethanol fermentation and to early detect possible contaminations by lactic acid bacteria, achieving an operation closer to the optimal conditions.
