Development of sustainable and renewable energy resource is one of the most promising requirements of current world. Thermomyces lanuginosus DSM 28966/NCIM 1374 have been extensively studied in our laboratory and at Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra and shown very unique property of degrading complex plant polysaccharide xylan to monosaccharide unit xylose in just 15 minutes of reaction. The uniqueness was in liberating sole monosaccharide unit as byproduct. This property was effectively clubbed with a fermentation process ahead and we were successful in production of 40% ethanol, by the process of simultaneous saccharification and fermentation. In order to increase ethanol production, Xylanase gen xyn SS8 was heterogously expressed in Pichia stipitis and the entire control of saccharification and fermentation process was brought under one living system. Optimization of process for enhanced ethanol production is in progress.
