The production of enzymes by bioprocesses is a good value added to agro industry residues. A comparative study was carried
out on the production of protease using different varieties of Rice brokens (BPT-5204,CR-1009,RNR-10754,NLR-145) from
Rice mill wastes as substrates in solid-state fermentation (SSF) by Aspergillus niger. Among the all tested varieties of rice broken
NLR-145 produced the highest activity as 0.379μg/ml while RNR-10754 produced lowest protease as 0.159μg/ml under solid state
fermentation conditions. The optimized conditions for producing maximum yield of protease were incubation at 30
C, 72 h and
pH 6.The protease production from waste treatment could be commercially used in detergents and leather industry.
