Production of Ethanol Using Yeast Isolates on Water Hyacinth and Azolla

  title={Production of Ethanol Using Yeast Isolates on Water Hyacinth and Azolla},
  author={R. Hossain and Miraj Kobad Chowdhury and Sabina Yeasmin and Md. Mozammel Hoq},
Introduction In the past several years the changing world energy situation has generated intensive discussion about biofuels1. First generation biofuel feedstock sources: sugarcane and cereal grains to produce bioethanol and biobutanol and oilseeds to produce biodiesel compete directly with needs for world food security2. Secondgeneration bioethanolic/biobutanolic biofuels will come from cultivated lignocellulosic crops or straw wastes. Algae and cyanobacteria for third generation biodiesel… CONTINUE READING
