ABSTRACT
Research on bio-ethanol production has been promoted since the recent past as the fuel is efficient, biodegradable, environment friendly and cost effective alternate for the existing fossil fuel. Agricultural and forestry raw materials can be utilized to produce renewable energy in the form of liquid/gaseous fuel which has got reduced CO2 emission on combustion unlike fossil fuels and hence it has an impact on climate variations. Bio-ethanol derived from lignocellulosic material is a potential renewable carbon source and behaves as an alternative fuel to the existing conventional fuel. In this paper, ethanol production by Simultaneous Saccharification and Fermentation (SSF) process from lignocellulosic materials of the soft wood (Moringa oleifera) has been performed by using the thermo-tolerant yeast Kluyveromyces marxianus MTCC 1338. This soft wood appears to be one of the best sources of renewable energy and it has given the highest yield when compared to other substrates. This paper investigates the production of bio-ethanol and the found optimum conditions were temperature at 42oC, pH 4.6 and substrate concentration of 38 g/L. The results indicate the maximum ethanol concentration of 20.91(g/L) was obtained with the designed fermentation conditions.
