The effect of temperature and exogenous ethanol was evaluated on the ethanol production potential of Zymomonas mobilis MTCC 2428 as an alternative to the classic and widespread use of Saccharomyces cerevisiae . At 30 °C, this strain produced the maximum amounts of ethanol, i.e. 4.0 and 3.3% (v/v) after utilizing 98 and 83% (w/v) sugar on glucose and molasses medium, respectively. While at higher temperatures (35 & 40 °C), the ethanol production by the strain decreased. Moreover, the strain was… CONTINUE READING
