Chaetomiumcellulolyticum was able to produce xylanases on all the three lignocelluloses: wheat straw, corn stover and aspen wood. Wheat straw was the best. Solid state fermentation of lignocelluloses gave higher yields of xylanases than liquid state fermentation, but it took longer time of incubation.
