  • Coffee cherry husk - a potential feed stock for alcohol production

    Coffee cherry husk (CCH) a toxic agro waste was tested for alcohol production by native yeast isolates. Out of five isolated yeasts, two produced acceptable amount of alcohol production from CCH extract. Pichia CJ isolated from rotten carrot and Clavispora CI isolated from coffee effluent produced maximum yield of 9.2 and 8.0%, respectively. Solid substrate fermentation (SSF) using CCH supported ...

  • Influence of glucose feeding on the ligninolytic enzyme production of the white-rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium

    The present work studied the influence of glucose feeding on the ligninolytic enzyme production of Phanerochaete chrysosporium in a nitrogen-limited (C/N ratio is 56/8.8 mmol/L) medium. Several sets of shaking flask experiments were conducted. The results showed that 2 g/L glucose feeding on the first day of the culture (24 h after the inoculation) simulated both fungal biomass growth and enzyme ...
