Bioethanol production from newspaper waste using microorganisms
K Ponnu Lakshmi and P Rajeswari
In this present study, an attempt was made to reduce the accumulation of solid waste and the production of bioethanol from the wastes i.e., Newspaper. In the bioethanol production process, microorganisms were used instead of commercially available cellulose enzyme which is very expensive. In comparison with various composition, the fermentative medium containing 30g of Newspaper + 400 ml of distilled water + 100 ml of chemically defined medium, showed the better bioethanol production [(1.56 OD at 660 nm) and 1.12 mg/l of ethanol concentration]. The result indicates that the newspaper will be a one of the better source for bioethanol production.
