Bioethanol production from seagrass waste, through fermentation process using cellulase enzyme isolated from marine actinobacteria


Abstract:

Seagrass wrack can be utilized as a raw material to produce bioethanol, a sustainable biofuel, to overcome fossil fuel exhaustion and ecological issues. The present investigation focused on the production of bioethanol from seagrass wracks, utilizing acid and enzyme hydrolysis. The results reveal that the ethanol production (0.78 ml  g−1) from the seagrass species Cymodocea serrulata was maximum than C. rotundata (0.72 ml g−1) hydrolyzed by cellulase enzyme isolated from the marine actinobacterial strain. This investigation gives acceptable proof that the conversion of seagrass wrack to bioethanol could be a practical ecological solution for managing undesirable seagrass wrack, balancing carbon emission, and producing an economically valuable product. The results showed that Cymodocea species could be used as a substrate for bioethanol production.
