Four isolates of Aspergillus niger (viz., CA16, 14/20, HB3 and 318) were used for citric acid production using sugarcane bagasse as a substrate and sucrose solution as a moistening agent. Using 3 g of sugarcane bagasse as substrate, the highest citric acid production was obtained when 10 ml of 14% sucrose solution was used as moistening agent. Maximum citric acid production was found after 11 days fermentation for all isolates of A. niger. Both sugar utilization as well as citric acid… Expand
