Effect of calcium ions on ethanol production from molasses by Saccharomyces cerevisiae


One of the most widely used feedstocks for potable or biofuel ethanol fermentation is blackstrap molasses, a byproduct of cane sugar production. Inconsistent quality of molasses frequently found in industrial production, however, makes ethanol production much less efficient and cost-ineffective. Besides fermentable sugars (sucrose, glucose and fructose… (More)
