ABSTRACT:
Production of ethanol from the fruit waste using Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast has been investigated in ultrasound bath. The effect of temperature, PH on ethanol production was studied and optimized. The Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast was found to yield maximum ethanol production to the extent of 7 %V under identical conditions. Due to sonication, fermentation was achieved within short period of time. It was found that intra particle diffusion resistance has been overcome due to sonication.
