|Title: ||PRODUCTION OF SINGLE CELL FROM BREWRY EFFLUENT|
|Authors: ||Row-land, Stella Toyin.|
|Issue Date: ||Jul-1991|
There are many useful applications of micro - organisms in the
A variety of important products in diet ( animal feed and human
food diet) are produced with the aid of microbial activity. The production of
single cell protein has been carried out using brewery effluent as the substrate
for three different fermentation runs.
The following growth parameters were investigated for the fermentation
runs, specific growth rate ~, generation time (tg) and protein
content. These parameters revealed that successive generation led to better
adaptation of micro - organism to the medium (environment) as indicated by
increasing growth rate 11 = O. 0817hr -, O. 0821hr - and O. 0842hr - and decreasing
generation time of tg = 9. 154hrs, 8.796hrs and 7.917hrs respectively
for the three different runs.
The protein content was also found to increase appreciably from
46.4% in the first run to 48.1% in the second and third runs.|
