Production of Ethanol from Banana Waste Plantation by Using Cellulase of Fungal Species Isolated from Banana Plantations in and Around Mysuru District

Lakshmi.C.M


Abstract: Banana is widely used fruit in the world and India is the largest producer as per the FAO, Regarding ethanol production from banana waste biomass can be efficiently performed by the dissociation of the lignin-cellulose-hemicellulose complex and enable to attain of high yields of fermentable sugars. In the present study ethanol was produced by using cellulase of (Cellulase enzyme which can convert cellulose to lower sugars) three fungi (Aspergillus, Curvularia, Fusarium) isolated from waste banana plantation dumping yard, were taken in concentration of 1 ml and inoculated to 100 ml fermentation medium containing banana waste plantation for 5 days, after saccharification is complete fermentation broth was inoculated with Saccharomyces sps. for 5 more days, presence of ethanol was identified by chromic acid test and confirmed by Gas chromatography. Among the three isolated enzymes, cellulase enzyme of Aspergillus species has produced 48.46 %ethanol.
