ABSTRACT
Ethanol is a kind of basic biomass liquid energy, the conversion of biomass to ethanol has been studied extensively. The process of biomass pretreatment can change its physical and chemical properties, and these changes affect the chemical conversion of biomass products in quality and yield of late. This paper reviews the physical method, chemical method, biological method, three kinds of pretreatment technique, the related principle and development prospects are introduced.
