Brazil is the second largest producer of ethanol in the world and the first in the technology of ethanol from sugar cane. The Brazilian bioprocess of ethanol production is based on molasses or cane juice substrate. Currently, a fed-batch or continuous or mixed process is operated with a stable cell recycle and high yeast concentration. The ethanol efficiency is controlled by several industrial parameters of fermentation and depending on balance of these parameters and some chemical and… CONTINUE READING
