Abstract:

The aim of this study is to determine the optimal aluminum sulfate catalyzed hydrolysis parameters for furfural production from birch inner bark using a central composite design coupled with the response surface methodology. The conditions of hydrolysis such as temperature (165175 C), catalyst concentration (1216 %), catalyst amount (68 %), steam flow rate (150210 mL/min) and initial moisture content (2026 %) of birch inner bark were varied according to the factorial design. Under the optimal conditions, the maximum furfural yield could be 54.6 % of the theoretically possible amount.
