  • Process

    Treating agricultural residue (i.e. corn stover, wheat straw) with either calcium hydroxide (hydrated lime) or calcium oxide (quicklime) makes the residue more digestible and nutritious. Lime treatment raises the pH level of the stover or straw resulting in lower fiber lignin content. The higher pH breaks the bonds that link lignin to hemicellulose in the cell walls of the stover or straw.
