    Sugar beet pulp may be a little low in cellulose sugars but it does have a high protein content that as part of a cascading process can be extracted as a suitable soybean protein EU import substitute. Furthermore SBP has a large % of pectin and hemicellulose that may be hydrolyzed using enzyme cocktails with no need for thermochemical processing. Challenges for ethanol include a unique and complex sugar stream that include galactose, arabinose, and galacturonic acid. Therefore it is better to extract a higher value D(-) Lactic Acid for scPLA production. At least some of the super profits lost can be reclaimed.
