Project funded through AlexRep program

Duration : October 2008 to October 2010

Aim:

1) Identify the optimum fermentation conditions that yield highly production of ethanol from wastes and by-products (whey and permeate)using biotechnology tools ,

(2) Determine the optimum level of whey ingredients needed to supplement protein content in bread and Pasta Spaghetti . This work fulfils one of research area proposed among Alexandria University’s research plan through the Faculty of Agriculture research plan for the next five years: Utilization of by- products to produce novel food products and reduce the environmental problems besides finding renewable resource that can be utilized to produce bio-fuel using biotechnology tools.
