- ... In this work cassava bagasse, a by-product of cassava starch industrialization was investigated as a new raw material to extract cellulose whiskers. This by-product is basically constituted of cellulose fibers (17.5wt%) and residual starch (82wt%). Therefore, this residue contains both natural fibers and a considerable quantity of starch and this composition suggests the possibility of using cassa ...

- ... This study reports the optimization of cellulase production by a versatile Aspergillus fumigatus fresenius (AMA) strain capable of efficient deinking and enzymatic hydrolysis of Solka floc and bagasse. The culture produced maximal levels of cellulase on basal salt medium containing rice straw as carbon and beef extract as nitrogen source at 45°C. Further optimization of enzyme production was carri ...
