Abstract:

Biologically treated paddy straw was hydrolysed using commercial cellulase and fermented to ethanol by yeast. Lignin degrading fungus Pleurotus sajor-caju removed 35.1 % lignin from paddy straw at 40 days incubation. Hydrolysis of biologically treated paddy straw with cellulase enzyme loaded at 5 FPU/g substrate at 500C resulted in about 119 mg/g sugar release. Fermentation of enzymatic hydrolysate by Saccharomyces cerevisiae resulted in production of 2.0 % ethanol after 72 h incubation at 30°C.


Keywords: Bio-ethanol, Delignification, Hydrolysis, Paddy straw, Pleurotus sajor-caju
