Despite certain environmental advantages over fossil diesel, land crops-derived biodiesel may not satisfy the increasing
worldwide demand for the transportations fuel, due to the high production costs. The same may be true if microorganisms
such as filamentous fungus are cultivated as feedstock for biodiesel production in synthetic medium. Trying to overcome cost
problems this study evaluated the Mortierella isabellina ATCC2613 bioconversion potential of corn stovers into microbial lipids
to be used for biodiesel production. A co-hydrolysis process, which applied dilute acid pretreatment without detoxification and
liquid –solid separation, was directly followed by enzymatic saccharification and lipid fermentation. The first step involved the
conversion of lignocellulose material into monomeric sugars (glucose and xylose), and then the fungus was innoculated into
the co-hydrolysate medium to accumulate lipids. The corn stover co-hydrolysate used as the carbon source in these cultures
showed comparable results to the synthetic medium. Nevertheless, this research revealed that the applied treatment may lower
the production costs and improve the potential of using advanced lignocelluosic material for biodiesel, with a comparable
reduction of the CO2 emission.


Javid Hussain is currently a PhD Research Scholar, at Bioenergy Lab, Institute of Biology, Federal University of Bahia, Brazil. He received Master’s degree in
Chemistry from Institute of Chemical Sciences, University of Peshawar, Pakistan. After completing Master’s, he received three offers for PhD at the same year from
three countries, Australia, Brazil and South Korea. As his choice he accepted (TWAS), The World Academy of Science Awards, and joined Bioenergy lab, as PhD
scholar in 2012 Institute of Chemistry, Federal University of Bahia, Brazil. Since April, 2013 he got another visiting research scholar awards from CNPq Brazil, and
received three acceptance letters from Taxes A&M University, Lowa State University and Michigan States University, United States though he joined Bioenergy lab,
at Department of Bio system and Agricultural Engineering, Michigan States University as visiting research scholar under. During that time he published two articles
as first author. He attained more than five international bioenergy research conferences and meeting in United States, Canada and in Brazil. In last five years he has
about 15 publications in environmental chemistry and bioenergy research studies area.
