Abstract The simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF) of damaged grains of sorghum and rice was carried out using Aspergillus niger (NCIM 1248) and Saccharomyces cerevisiae VSJ1. More ethanol was produced from the damaged sorghum (2·90% v/v) than damaged rice (2·09% v/v) under optimal fermentation conditions. This study reveals that damaged grains can be utilized efficiently by an SSF process for the production of ethanol.
