Fermentation of acid hydrolysate of water-hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes), a free floating aquatic plant has been investigated for ethanol production. The dilute acid treatment has been applied to utilize the maximum hemicellulosic content of the water-hyacinth. The goal of this work was to investigate, both experimentally and theoretically using mathematical tools, a fermentative system utilizing water-hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) hemicellulose acid hydrolysate as a substrate for ethanol… CONTINUE READING
