Abstract:
To investigate the effect of enzymatic saccharification and ethanol fermentation of paddy straw supplemented with fruits waste, NaOH was used to prepare paddy straw hydrolysate. Results revealed that bioethanol production from alkali (2% NaOH) pretreated paddy straw supplemented with mixed fruit peels under simultaneous saccharification and co-fermentation using yeast strains viz., Saccharomyces cerevisiae HAU-1 and Candida sp. was done at different temperature and incubation period. Maximum ethanol (4.4%) production was recorded after 72 h incubation at 35 0C.
