Cellulase production byTalaromycesemersonii CBS 814.70 co-immobilized with cellulose in calcium alginate

  • A. P. McHale


The thermophilic fungusTalaromycesemersonii CBS 814.70 was co-immobilized with cellulose in calcium alginate beads. Cellulose production by this system was compared with a conventional process. The immobilized system continued to produce enzyme in a batch-fed reactor system while the non-immobilized had ceased production; levels of enzyme produced by the immobilized system were almost twice the maximum produced by the non-immobilized system.
