Title: Systems and methods for enhancing microbial conversion of biomass using mechanical augmentation

Abstract

A system and method for converting biomass with no chemical pretreatment is disclosed. Combination of a microbial system and the use of mechanical disruption during fermentation may help achieve high conversion rate without the extra cost and undesirable by-products typically associated with the pretreatment process.
