Nearly to 50,000 to 60000 crore of non processed products are thrown always in India, which are utilized to some extent to soil improvement but major portion is thrown away as waste. In present study efforts were made to produce valuable substance from some agro waste through the microbial fermentation process. Fossil fuels create a negative impact on our environment as greenhouse gas emissions are harmful. Production of ethanol (as an alternative fuel) from food and agricultural waste was done in present study by bio-processing. Wastes from  fruits, such as banana, orange peels were subjected to simultaneous saccharification and fermentation for 7 days using Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The ethanol yield was determined at 24 hours interval. The optimal ethanol yields were 8.34% v/v, 7.45 % v/v, 3.98 % v/v and 2.58 % v/v form banana, orange peels respectively. These indicate that banana peels ethanol yields was significantly higher than orange peels ethanol yield.

Keywords: Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Bio Processing , sachcharification.
