Abstract:
Ethanol concentration and the rate of ethanol production were substantially increased when soy flour was added to the inoculum medium, which saved 95% added soy flour compared to supplementing fermentation medium. 11.7% ethanol was obtained by supplementing inoculum medium with soy flour and the fermentation time was reduced by more than 15%.
