Abstract

Solid-state fermentation (SSF) has been successfully applied in commercial production of soy sauce koji and other traditional fermented foods, citric and gluconic acids, and fungal enzymes such as cellulases, amylases, lipases, and pectinases [1, 2]. Fungal spores have been produced by SSF for use in steroid transformations and as inocula for production of blue-vein cheeses [2]. Composting is another widely practiced SSF application but different in it desires self-heating of the fermenting substrate. In addition to these commercial processes, over the last 20 years there has been a growing interest in other SSF applications [2] including products of solid substrate fermentation used in processing coffee and cocoa, as well as in environmentally significant operations: composting, silage production, soil bioremediation, biodesulfurization of coal, and metal recovery from low-grade ores [3]. Solid substrate fermentations are employed also in producing enzymes and chemicals and in biotransformations.
