Production of Biosurfactant of Microbial Origin Using Different Raw Materials

P. W. Deshmukh | N. S. Kulkarni

Abstract: Surfactants are widely used for industrial, agricultural, food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications. Most of the Surfactants are chemically synthesized. However, it is only in the past few decades that surface active molecules of microbial origin referred as biosurfactants, have gained considerable interest. Biosurfactants have advantages over their chemicals counterparts because they are biodegradable, have low toxicity, effective at extreme temperatures or pH values and show better environmental compatibility. To overcome the production cost and to compete with synthetic surfactant inexpensive substrate and effective microorganism must be develop. The present study deals with the efficient use of industrial and agricultural waste as the possible substrate for biosurfactant production and oil has proved to be an attractive substrate for biosurfactant production.
