Pretreatment and hydrolysis of cellulosic agricultural wastes with a cellulase- producing Streptomyces for bioethanol production


Production of reducing sugar by hydrolysis of corncob material with Streptomyces sp. cellulase and ethanol fermentation of cellulosic hydrolysate was investigated. Cultures of Streptomyces sp. T3-1 improved reducing sugar yields with the production of CMCase, Avicelase and β-glucosidase activity of 3.8, 3.9 and 3.8 IU/ml, respectively. CMCase, Avicelase… (More)
