Abstract [en]

The carbohydrates of sweet sorghum were directly converted to ethanol by a mixed culture of Fusarium oxysporum F3 and Saccharomyces cerevisiae 2541. A number of factors affecting this bioconversion was studied. Optimum ethanol yields of 33·2 g/100 g of total sorghum carbohydrates, corresponding to 10·3 g/100 g of fresh stalks, were obtained. These values represented 68·6% of the theoretical yield based on total polysaccharides and exceeded that based on oligosaccharides of sorghum by 53·7%. The results demonstrated that more than half of the sorghum polysaccharides were directly fermented to ethanol, thus making the process worthy of further investigation.
