Solid-state fermentation (SSF) has been popular method for production of enzymes using agro-industrial residues. Use of agro-industrial waste residues as substrate can avoid the environmental problems caused by its disposal in the environment. Fungi and bacteria can grow on solid substrates and find application in SSF processes. Filamentous fungi are the best adapted for SSF and dominate our SSF research work.
We have developed several strains adapted to SSF in our laboratory for production of multitude of enzymes relevant for food, feed, industrial and environmental applications. At Karyotica we make constant effort to identify high enzyme yielding conditions by optimizing growth conditions and growth medium for superior quality product which is economical to the client.
