The capability of local strains of Zymomonas mobilis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated from rafia palm (Elaesis guineesi) sap to produce ethanol from cassava waste water was investigated. Maximum ethanol produced after 48h period of fermentation by Zymomonas mobilis was 15.0 and16.5(% v/wt) in acid and enzyme hydrolysates respectively.In case of Saccharomyces cerevisiae 2.9 and 2.84(%v/wt) ethanol were produced in acid and enzyme hydrolysates respectively. In the course of fermentation, pH…

Bioethanol Production from Cassava Mill Effluents Supplemented with Solid Agricultural Residues Using Bakers' Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
Nigeria is the leading cassava and fifth largest oil palm producer, accounting for 54 and 0.93 million metric tonnes respectively. As such during processing large wastes are generated including
Pretreated of banana pseudo-stem as raw material for enzymatic hydrolysis and bioethanol production
Development of alternative energy is needed to solve the energy problem, including bioethanol. Banana pseudo-stem is a lignocellulose material that can used to produce bioethanol. Banana pseudo-stem
Challenges and opportunities in improving the production of bio-ethanol
Cassava Mill Effluents Recycling throughBioenergy Production: A Review
TLDR
The study found that cassava mill effluents have demonstrated positive potentials for biogas, biohydrogen, bioethanol, bioelectricity using varying technologies and there is the need for research to focus on other possible utilization of the sludge generated such as bio-fertilizer production as an option for reuse.
Estimation of Potential Cassava Mill EffluentsDischarged into Nigerian Environment
TLDR
The quantity of cassava mill effluents that is often discharged into the environment during gari production in Nigeria is estimated to be about 57.134 million tons, which shows that before 2035, Nigeria may likely produce at high, low and current status growth rate 79.544 million tons.
Trends of Progress in Setting up Biorefineries in Developing Countries: A Review of Bioethanol Exploration in Nigeria
In recent times, limitations and adverse effects of fossil fuels have significantly attracted researchers' attention to green fuels worldwide, especially in developed nations. As a way of assessing
Renewable Energy Products through Bioremediation of Wastewater
Due to rapid urbanization and industrialization, the population density of the world is intense in developing countries. This overgrowing population has resulted in the production of huge amounts of

TLDR
Much of the older work in bacteriology of uncritical systematic work has now lost its value and should be reconsidered in the light of modern findings.
