The mixture of Eucalyptus globulus wood (EGW) and cheese whey powder (CWP) was proposed for intensification of simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF) at high temperature and solid loadings using the industrial Saccharomyces cerevisiae Ethanol Red® strain. High ethanol concentration (93 g/L), corresponding to 94% ethanol yield, was obtained at 35 °C from 37% of solid mixture using cellulase and β-galactosidase enzymes (24.2 FPU/g and 20.0 U/g, respectively). The use of CWP mixed… Expand
