CELLULASE PRODUCTION BY TRICHODERMA REESEI FERMENTED IN SAWDUST AND BAGASSE

V. GURUCHANDRAN, I. PRIYA2 AND C. SASIKUMAR

Abstract

Sawdust and Bagasse were used as lignocellulosic substrates for the production of cellulase using Trichoderma reesei after ballmilling and pretreatment with caustic soda. From the fermentation studies, Sawdust gave the best result with an enzyme activity of 0.0842 IU/mL while bagasse gave 0.0679 IU/mL respectively. The two lignocellulosics gave their maximum enzyme activities at about the twelfth hour of cultivation, suggesting that the 12th hour is the optimum time when the enzyme may be harvested.
