ABSTRACT

 

In the course of ethanol production, many by-products are produced. These by-products are of huge importance, in terms of their composition and role towards the value addition to the process. The integrated process consists of the production of ethanol for energy and single cell protein and enzyme production from waste generated is the economic way to utilize biomass. Stillage which is rich in residual sugar and other nutrients may be suitable for cell growth and Single Cell Protein (SCP) production (protein-enriched animal feeds).

 

Keywords : Single Cell Protein, Enzyme, Stillage, Lignocellulytic fungi
