The conversion of starch from unhydrolyzed cassava flour to ethanol by a pure culture of Endomycopsis fibdigera and by a co-culture of this amylolytic yeast and the bacterium Zymmonas mobilis was studied.The best overall results were obtained using the mixed culture. After 96 h of fermentation of a medium containing 150 g/l initial cassava starch, an ethanol concentration of 31.4 g/l, a productivity of 0.33 g ethanoyl x h and a yield of 0.21 g ethanoyg initial starch were reached. The highest yield (0.37 g/g)…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
