In the present study, an attempt was made to benchmark the hydrolytic potential of cellulase cocktail obtained from stable mutant UV-8 of Talaromyces verruculosus IIPC 324 (NFCCI 4117) with three commercially available cellulases. With two experimental approaches, acid-pretreated sugarcane bagasse was subjected to hydrolysis for 72 h, where all the enzymes were dosed on the basis of common protein or common cellulase activity /g cellulose content. Concentrated fungal enzyme (CFE) of mutant UV-8 resulted in ~ 59% and 55% saccharification of acid-pretreated sugarcane bagasse after 72 h at 55 °C and pH 4.5 with respect to reducing sugar release, when dosed at 25 mg protein/g and 500 IU CMC’ase/g cellulose, respectively. On the other hand, at similar dosages, the performance of Cellic CTec2 was best resulting in 77% and 66% saccharification, respectively. When enzyme desorption studies were undertaken by carrying out cellulase activities in saccharified broth after 72 h CFE of UV-8 emerged as the best cellulase cocktail. A minimum of 90% endoglucanase and 60% cellobiohydrolase I was successfully desorbed from residual biomass, thereby increasing the probability of enzyme recycle and reuse for next round of hydrolysis.
