The Production of Xylanase Enzyme Using Agro-Industrial Waste by Solid Substrate Fermentation

Author(s): Nitin Kumar Singh and Vivek Kumar Tiwari

The production of Xylanase enzyme by Aspergillus nidulans was studied using solid substrate fermentation. This study is an attempt to optimise different conditions for the production of xylanase by utilising agro-industrial waste products as the sole carbon source for growth of microorganism. Pea, orange, pineapple and mosambi peels were used as substrate for enzyme production and it was observed that on using pea peels the maximum enzyme activity was achieved. Further, various physical and chemical parameters, which support the enzyme production, were optimised by the application of batch experiments at different conditions and by using Design Expert: A statistical tool, applying response surface methodology.
