Individual culture supernatants of six cellulolytic fungi and their mixed enzyme systems were compared in hydrolysis of pure celluloses and cellulose‐rich wastes. It has been observed that the hydrolysis rate of pure cellulosie substances in general increased by mixed enzymes as compared to the enzymes supernatant derived from only one microbial source. This effect was particularly high when Trichoderma and Penicillium enzyme systems were operated together.
