Hydrolysis and liquefaction

Hydrolysis and liquefaction are the breakdown of large, complex and insoluble organics into small molecules that can be transported into micro-bial cells and metabolized. Hydrolysis of the complex molecules is catalyzed by extracellular enzymes such as cellulase, protease and lipase. Essentially, organic waste stabilization does not occur during hydrolysis; the organic matter is simply converted into a soluble form that can be utilized by the bacteria (McCarty and Smith, 1986; Parkin and Owen, 1986).
