Abstract

As bio-product such as ethanol replace oil refineries, society and the environment will benefit from a switch from renewable resources as a source of energy, materials and chemicals. Biomass-based ethanol technologies are rapidly evolving are being identified that need to be overcome to achieve widespread commercialization. Current research is driven by the need to reduce the cost of biomass-ethanol production. The preferred method is enzymatic hydrolyzing the pretreated material to fermentable sugars that can then be converted to ethanol. That enzyme is cellulase. In this project, sugar cane waste was used as a substrate for the production of cellulase enzyme from Aspergillus terreus SUK-1 according to continued our government effort to converting the agricultural waste into something more valuable. Pretreatment research was focused on developing processes that would result in increased cellulase enzyme yields. Cellulase research efforts are focused on developing a cost-effective, highly thermostable, synergistically acting enzyme mixture that would meet the end user’s needs. Strong fermentation microorganisms are also being developed for conversion of biomass sugars to production of cellulase enzyme and other bio-products
