Effects of hemicellulose and lignin on enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulose from dairy manure
This study focused on the effect of hemicellulose and lignin on enzymatic hydrolysis of dairy manure and hydrolysis process optimization to improve sugar yield. It was found that hemicellulose andExpand

Optimization of l-(+)-lactic acid production using pelletized filamentous Rhizopus oryzae NRRL 395
Lactic acid is used as a food additive for flavor and preservation and a precursor in the development of poly-lactic acid, a product used to make biodegradable plastics and textiles. Rhizopus oryzaeExpand

Application of statistically-based experimental designs for the optimization of nisin production from whey
Statistically-based experimental designs were applied for the optimization of nisin production by Lactococcus lactis in a whey-based medium. Yeast extract, KH2PO4, and MgSO4 were identified to haveExpand

Optimizing dilute acid hydrolysis of hemicellulose in a nitrogen-rich cellulosic material--dairy manure.
Effective dilute acid hydrolysis of dairy manure which contains roughly 12% hemicellulose on a dry matter basis can produce a variety of mono-sugars such as arabinose, xylose and galactose, as wellExpand

Simultaneous production of nisin and lactic acid from cheese whey
A biorefinery process that utilizes cheese whey as substrate to simultaneously produce nisin, a natural food preservative, and lactic acid, a raw material for biopolymer production, was studied. TheExpand

Stimulation of nisin production from whey by a mixed culture of Lactococcus lactis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The production of nisin, a natural food preservative, by Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis (ATCC 11454) is associated with the simultaneous formation of lactic acid during fermentation in a whey-basedExpand
