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… 

Solid substrate fermentation for cellulase production using palm kernel cake as a renewable lignocellulosic source in packed-bed bioreactor

Palm kernel cake (PKC), is an agro-industrial residue created in the palm oil industry, and large quantities of PKC are produced in Malaysia. Sustainable development of the palm oil industry in

Optimization of Multi-enzyme Production by Fungi Isolated from Palm Kernel Expeller using Response Surface Methodology

Response surface methodology (RSM) was used to optimize the co-production of a mixture of crude cellulosic and hemicellulosic enzymes (endoglucanase, xylanase, and mannanase) by Aspergillus terreus

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,

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 processing

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.

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.

Aspergillus oryzae and Aspergillus niger Co-Cultivation Extract Affects In Vitro Degradation, Fermentation Characteristics, and Bacterial Composition in a Diet-Specific Manner

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).

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.

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 as

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 niger



Reduction of phytic acid content in canola meal by Aspergillus ficuum in solid state fermentation process

The SSF process seems to be beneficial for the upgrading of canola meal by reducing both its phytic acid content and increasing the amount of protein.
