The cellulolytic activity of several aerobic soil actinomycetes against insoluble cellulose and soluble cellulose derivatives (CMC-carboxymethylcellulose) was studied. From the soil, 8 actinomycete strains were isolated after enrichment growth and purification on the same synthetic medium. The actinomycete strains were able to degrade insoluble cellulose,(More)
The microbial biodegradation of cellophane (U.C.B.--Division Sidac) was studied. Preliminary experiments with pure cultures of seven cellulolytic microorganisms (Aspergillus sp., Penicillium sp., Chaetomium crispatum, Ch. globosum, Sclerotium rolfsii and two actinomycetes) revealed that the substrate as such was very recalcitrant, probably due to the(More)
A process for the production of high-fructose syrups and crystalline fructose has been developed. The raw material for this process is cichory roots, which contain about 17% of inulin (polyfructose). One of the advantages of cichory roots is, that it is a European agricultural product, so it fits better in the EEC policy. The inulin is extracted from the(More)
