Agricultural Residues and Cereals as Fermentation Media

  • Margrethe Andersen

In many traditional industrial processes based on biomass, the production only takes place in the harvest season and the products are main products such as starch, sugar, green pellets, potato chips etc. plus a residue used as fertilizer or animal feed stuff. From economical and environmental points of view such processes are not very rational. A yearround, integrated production with more biotechnologically-based products would seem more reasonable.
