Table 3 Ys estimated 64% based on experimental data; 192 g PSOM used

From: Bioconversion of paper sludge to biofuel by simultaneous saccharification and fermentation using a cellulase of paper sludge origin and thermotolerant Saccharomyces cerevisiaeTJ14

Factor Estimated sugar amount (g)
Theoretical glucose needed 38.8 g/l/0.51 × 1.2 l = 91.3
RS at the end fermentation 11 g/l × 1.2 l = 14.4
Glucose for yeast maintenance ma (g/g cell/h) × 7.1 g/l × 72 h = 17.5
Total RS in hydrolysate 123
Estimated Ys (%) 123/192 × 100 = 64.0
  1. aWhere m = 0.034 g glucose/(g cell/h) [19].
  2. PSOM = paper sludge organic material; RS = reducing sugars.
