Lee, Ting Hun and Mat, Hanapi (1997) The potential of citric acid production using pineapple waste. In: Regional Symposium on Chemical Engineering 1997 in conjunction with 13th Symposium of Malaysian Chemical Engineers, 13-15 October 1997, Hyatt Regency, Johor, Malaysia.
Citric acid fermentation with Aspergillus niger ATCC 10577 in stirred tank reactors (5l) were carried out using pineapple solid and liquid waste. Highest yield (13.07g/l) was obtained with the solid pineapple waste while liquid pineapple waste obtained a 6.59 g/l yield based on the sugar consumed. Shake flasks culture were done initially to find the suitable pH and dilution rate.
