Production of biofuel ethanol from pretreated seagrass by using Saccharomyces cerevisiae


The present study was aimed to produce the bioethanol from seagrass biowastes using Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It reveals that, the maximum production of ethanol (0.047 ml.g-1 ) was recorded from the fresh seagrass leaves in acid pre treatment. Hence, the fresh seagrass leaves could be used one of the suitable substrates for the production of bioethanol.
