Abstract

Ethanol production from NaOH-Pretreated solid state fermented sweet sorghum bagasse with an engineered strain of Z. mobilis TSH-ZM-01 was optimized. Results showed that: (1) residual solid removal during ethanol fermentation was unnecessary and 24 h fermentation duration was optimal for ethanol production; (2) ethanol yield of 179.20 g/kg of solid state fermented sweet sorghum bagasse achieved under the optimized process conditions of cellulase loading of 0.04 g/g-glucan, xylanase loading of 0.01 g/g-xylan, liquid to solid ratio of 9:1 and pre-hydrolysis duration for 72 h.
