Abstract: Cellulose biomass is being investigated as a potential substrate for bioethanol production. Cassava stalks were successfully converted to ethanol by fermentation using Saccharomyces cerevisiae TISTR5048, S. cerevisiae KM1195, S. cerevisiae KM7253 and co-culture of S. cerevisiae TISTR5048 and Candida tropicalis TISTR5045. The objective of this study was to assess the ethanol production from cassava stalks by dilute-acid pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis that were convertible into ethanol by mono-culture and…
