In this work, to improve ethanol fermentation based on 300 g&#x00B7;L<sup>&#x2212;1</sup> initial glucose, the statistical approaches were employed to optimize the fermentation conditions. Plackett-Burman design was used for the initial screening, and (NH<inf>4</inf>)<inf>2</inf>SO<inf>4</inf>, KH<inf>2</inf>PO<inf>4</inf> and inoculum size were identified(More)
The limited global crude oil reserve coupled with the environmental worsening caused by the excessive consumption of petroleum-derived fuels, has forced human to look for alternative sources of energy. Ethanol, both renewable and environmentally benign, is regarded as one of the best alternatives. In this paper, we summarize the advance in bioethanol(More)
Employing thermotolerant yeasts in ethanol fermentation has many advantages, such as reducing cooling costs, accelerating fermentation rates and decreasing contamination chances during the process. In this work, to improve the thermotolerance of self-flocculating yeast, the parental strain was treated with UV-irradiation and diethyl sulfate (DES), singly(More)
