Abstract

A fibrous waste residue (20%) obtained in the manufacture of starch and sago from cassava poses disposal problems. Fermentation studies for the production of alcohol on saccharified waste revealed that enrichment with mineral salts and N is essential. An inoculum of 24.2 x 10-6 cells 50 ml medium was optimal, while highest quantity of alcohol formed with 96 h fermentation. Though optimum initial sugar concn. in the fermentation medium was about 15%, the saccharified waste needed expensive concn. treatment to raise the sugar concn. to the optimum level. Economic considerations suggest the use of saccharified waste without concn.
