This project deals with the following primary themes:
- Development of efficient bioethanol using tropical crops residues, such as cassava or sugarcane bagasse residues
- Development of efficient bioethanol and bioplastic production technologies using waste old oil palm trunks (Fig. 1)
Fig. 3 Ethanol production from old oil palm trunks
Felled oil palm trunks (above 2 photos) contained large quantity of sap (below 2 photos). This sap with high glucose content can be used for ethanol fermentation.
