The research effort is an investigation of storage and preprocessing systems for utilization of sweet stalk forage sorghum. The process involves initial grinding and ensiling of the raw material to extend the storage life and to increase the reactivity of the lignocellulosic fraction. Following ensiling, the lignocellulosic fraction is hydrolyzed with cellulolytic enzymes, and the resulting fermentable substrate is extracted and fermented to fuels and chemicals. Particular attention is given to changes of all carbohydrate and organic acid fractions during the course of the ensiling and the subsequent anaerobic fermentations
