Ethanol production from mahula (Madhuca latifolia L.) flowers with immobilized cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in Luffa cylindrica L. sponge discs
AbstractThe dried spongy fruit of luffa (Luffa cylindrica L.), a cucurbitaceous crop available in abundance in tropical and sub-tropical countries has been found to be a promising material for immobilizing microbial cells. The aim of the present study was to examine the ethanol production from mahula flowers in submerged fermentation using whole cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae immobilized in luffa sponge discs. The cells not only survived but also were physiologically active in three more cycles of fermentation without significant reduction (
