The results of the application of the subcritical water hydrolysis technique for the utilization of lignocellulosic residues from pea (Pisum sativum L.) shells to obtain reducing sugars are presented. To this end, the combined effect of the factors temperature, reaction time, pressure and water/lignocellulosic material ratio, managed in ranges established from preliminary runs, was evaluated. The experiments were performed in a batch reactor and the heating was carried out in a furnace. The presence of reducing sugars was quantified using the DNS technique.
