Abstract Share this page

The last decade has witnessed an unprecedented increase in interest in solid state fermentation (SSF) for the development of bioprocesses, such as bioremediation and biodegradation of hazardous compounds, biological detoxification of agro-industrial residues, biotransformation of crops and crop-residues for nutritional enrichment, biopulping, and production of value-added products, such as biologically active secondary metabolites, including antibiotics, alkaloids, plant growth factors, etc. enzymes, organic acids, biopesticides, including mycopesticides and bioherbicides, biosurfactants, biofuel, aroma compounds, etc. SSF systems, which during the previous two decades were termed as a ‘low-technology’ systems, appear to be a promising one for the production of value-added ‘low volume-high cost’ products such as biopharmaceuticals. SSF processes offer potential advantages in bioremediation and biological detoxification of hazardous and toxic compounds. With the advent of biotechnological innovations, mainly in the area of enzyme and fermentation technology, many new avenues have opened for the application of SSF. This review discusses more recent developments in the area of SSF leading to the developments of bioprocesses and products.
