Bacterial contamination by Lactobacillus sp. is one of the main causes of sugar losses and cost increase in ethanol fermentation. The losses in ethanol fermentation may reach 27% due to bacterial contamination, which also raises the cost of production by the use of antibiotics. Contamination levels can reach a level of 10^7 causing negative impacts on fermentation, such as pH modificati...
Only a third of the biomass of sugarcane is processed into ethanol, while the other two thirds are dropped as bagasse and straw. Cellulose and hemicellulose are the most abundant polymers in sugar cane bagasse, and have a very complex arrangement in the cell wall. Cellulases and hemicellulases are glycoside hydrolases responsible for the complete hydrolysis of plants cell-wall polysacch...
Much of the world scenario is currently focused on research related to biofuels, ways of reducing CO2 released into the atmosphere and renewable energy. Among these topics, Brazil stands out in the use of bioethanol as well as use it to supply much of the country's vehicles and reduce dependence on oil as well as exporting. Due to the great importance of this fuel, several studies propo...
