Utilization of Whey as One Dairy Industrial Waste in the Production of Alcohol

Abstract: Production of ethanol from whey and milk permeate by Kluyveromyces marxianus was investigated. Utilized sugar percentages in whey and milk permeate were 3.94 and 5.17 % after 48-h fermentation period. Ethanol yield revealed that the best substrate for ethanol production is whey (85.81%) followed by milk permeate (67.85%) and this parallel with the biomass products.
