SummaryMolasses-based distilleries produce large quantities of dark coloured effluent, which is a major cause of environmental pollution. [...] Key Method Three different levels of effluent treatment were applied to bagasse and wheat straw. Wheat straw was found to be the preferred substrate and showed better results than bagasse in all treatments with respect to yield, biological efficiency (BE) and dry matter loss. P. florida (EM 1303) and P. pulmonarius (EM 1302) gave significantly enhanced yield with…Expand
