Abstract

In this work an amylolitic enzyme complex - obtained from fermentation of whole wheat flour by Aspergillus awamori - was used for starch hydrolysis in batch and continuous (hollow fibre membrane bioreactor) systems. In the batch system a model was applied to describe glucose production. The continuous enzyme membrane system worked more efficiently compared to the batch system at low substrate concentrations.
