Title
Direct lactic acid fermentation: Focus on simultaneous saccharification and lactic acid production
Abstract

In the recent decades biotechnological production of lactic acid has gained a prime position in the industries as it is cost effective and eco-friendly. Lactic acid is a versatile chemical having a wide range of applications in food, pharmaceutical, leather and textile industries and as chemical feedstock for so many other chemicals. It also functions as the monomer for the biodegradable plastic. Biotechnological production is advantageous over chemical synthesis in that we can utilize cheap raw materials such as agro-industrial byproducts and can selectively produce the stereo isomers in an economic way. Simultaneous saccharification and fermentation can replace the classical double step fermentation by the saccharification of starchy or cellulosic biomass and conversion to lactic acid concurrently by adding inoculum along with the substrate degrading enzymes. It not only reduces the cost of production by avoiding high energy consuming biomass saccharification, but also provides the higher productivity than the single step conversion by the providing adequate sugar release.
