Ferulic acid is covalently linked with variety of ester bond in plant cell wall make it challenging to be released naturally. Therefore, appropriate fermentation technique with co-culture could be an effective way to produce ferulic acid. The aims of this research were to develop the co-culture system and to evaluate their performance in releasing ferulic acid. Highest production of ferulic acid from banana stem waste as their sole carbon source was found in co-culture of Bacillus cereus CCM 2010, Bacillus pumilus SAFR-032 and Bacillus thuringiensis Bt407. The co-culture was successfully increased 2.6-fold production compared to single culture in 24 hours period of fermentation. Production of ferulic acid were being consistent each production simply by maintaining the quality of the co-culture. The result of this study suggests that synergistic work by co-culture represents a significant role in manufacturing of valuable product through fermentation of agricultural waste.
