Saccharification of Paper Materials by Mixtures of Cellulase from Penicillium Funiculosum and Aspergillus Niger

Jacobus P.H. van Wyk and Alfred M. Mogale

Code Number:AU98043

Paper materials were treated with cellulase from Penicillium funiculosum and Aspergillus niger to hydrolyze there cellulose component and mixtures of these enzymes were applied to increase the extent of degradation. Cellulases were prepared at equal concentrations and a ratio mixture of 1 : 1 resulted in the strongest increase of saccharification relative to the individual action of both enzymes on all substrates. Office paper resulted in the highest increase of saccharification at this enzyme combination relative to the action of P. funiculosum cellulase on it. P. funiculosum cellulase showed the strongest hydrolysis on all substrates except with office paper that exhibited a higher susceptibility for cellulase from A. niger.
