The oil palm sector is one of the major plantation industries in Malaysia. Palm kernel cake is a byproduct of extracted palm kernel oil. Mostly palm kernel cake is wasted or is mixed with other nutrients and used as animal feed, especially for ruminant animals. Recently, palm kernel cake has been identified as an important ingredient for the formulation of animal feed, and it is also exported especially to Europe, South Korea, and Japan. It can barely be consumed by nonruminant (monogastric… Expand
Solid substrate fermentation for cellulase production using palm kernel cake as a renewable lignocellulosic source in packed-bed bioreactor

Solid state fermentation of palm kernel cake by bacillus subtilis
It is known that the Palm Kernel Cake (PKC) is one of the potential ingredients of the poultry feed. Inclusion of PKC in poultry feed is very limited due to its high fiber content, low palatability,Expand
Production of Acetone, Butanol, and Ethanol (ABE) by Clostridium acetobutylicum YM1 from Pretreated Palm Kernel Cake in Batch Culture Fermentation
The viability of most fermentation processes is very much dependent on the cheap fermentation medium used. Palm kernel cake (PKC) is an abundant biomass generated from the palm oil processingExpand
Characterization of fungi from palm kernel cake (PKC) and the effect of storage temperature on fungi growth
The findings clearly show that Aspergillus species profused at 25°C PKC storage, while it was restricted at low and high temperature, and the distributing strains are influenced by the storage temperature of the PKC matrices. Expand
Production of Cellulase and Xylanase by Aspergillus terreus KJ829487 Using Cassava Peels as Subtrates
Aspergillus terreus KJ829487 obtained from decaying cassava peels have the ability to produce high concentration cellulases and xylanases which effectively hydrolysed the lignocelluloses’ biomass to fermentable sugars. Expand

It is suggested that AOAN has the potential to improve the utilization of diets differently, including providing enzymes with changing microbiota (TMR, oat hay, and alfalfa hay) or providing enzymes alone (corn silage). Expand
Utilization of palm kernel cake for production of β-mannanase by Aspergillus niger FTCC 5003 in solid substrate fermentation using an aerated column bioreactor
The statistical model suggested that the optimal conditions for attaining the highest level of β-mannanase were incubation temperature of 32°C, initial moisture level of 59% and aeration rate of 0.5 l/min. Expand
Cheap Cellulase Production by Aspergillus sp. VTM1 Through Solid State Fermentation of Coffee Pulp Waste
Coffee pulp biomass waste can easily be found anywhere in Indonesia, considering it is the fourth world's largest coffee exporter. The utilization of coffee pulp is very limited and is categorized asExpand
Production of mannan-degrading enzymes from Aspergillus niger and Sclerotium rolfsii using palm kernel cake as carbon source.
The aim of this study is to produce and profile the mannan-degrading enzymes from local fungal isolates by submerged fermentation and saccharification of PKC. Results showed that Aspergillus nigerExpand


Production and extraction of pectinases obtained by solid state fermentation of agroindustrial residues with Aspergillus niger
In this work soy and wheat bran were employed as raw materials for the production of pectinases by Aspergillus niger through solid-state fermentation. Several fermentation and recovery parametersExpand
Qualitative relationships between medium composition, Aspergillus niger morphology, and phytase production were investigated in submerged and solid-state fermentations and found large pellets were not suitable as a morphological form for SSF inoculum, unless they were homogenized. Expand
Advantages of fungal enzyme production in solid state over liquid fermentation systems
Abstract The present paper attempts to explain why enzyme production in solid-state fermentation (SSF) is higher than in submerged fermentation (SmF). Recent work done in our laboratory [Biotechnol.Expand
