Biotechnological Potentials of Cassava Bagasse

07/03/2017

Crop residues such as cassava bagasse are annually renewable sources of energy. Though they are rich in carbohydrate, their utilization for any direct application is very less due to the low content of protein and poor digestibility. However, the utilization of such agro-industrial residues provides alternative sub- strate for bioprocesses and will solve the problem of environmental pollution to an extent. Several processes have been developed to utilize cassava bagasse, the fibrous residue of the tropical tuber for the production of value added products such as organic acids, ethanol, aroma, mushroom etc. The chapter focuses on the wide spectrum applications of cassava bagasse in bioprocess technology.
