In order to establish an efficient bioethanol production system from rice straw, a new strategy to ferment the mixture of glucose and xylose by a sequential application of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Pichia stipitis was developed, in which heat inactivation of S. cerevisiae cells before addition of P. stipitis was employed. The results showed that heating at 50°C for 6h was sufficient to give high xylose fermentation efficiency. By application of the inactivation process, 85% of the… CONTINUE READING
