An integrated Biological Process for Fungal Biomass Protein Production and Wastewater Reclamation
MetadataShow full item record
An integrated biotechprocess has been developed for fungal biomass protein roduction and wastewater reclamation from starch processing wastewater. The process resulted in producing 9.0 g/L fungal biomass, and removing total suspended solids, 95% BOD nd 75% nitrogen. The biomass products contained 45% protein and appreciable quantities of amino acids, and they would be nutritive and edible for animal consumption. The reclaimed wastewater could be used for farm irrigation. This technology appeared to be technically feasible and economically beneficial for food and agricultural industries.
