ABSTRACT

 

Energy is an important component in all the sectors of any society and serves as a key indicator of a country’s socio-economic growth, poverty eradication and security. This study was aimed at evaluating the biofuel production potential of three organic substrates (Cassava, Maize and Sugarcane Liquor). A total of 10kg weight each of the three samples was obtained from a local distributor at Marian Market Calabar, Cross River State. The organic substrates were then subjected to a four stage fermentation processes that lasted for a period of ten (10) days with subsequent production of bioethanol using distillation method. The results show bacterial isolates before fermentation include Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Bacillus, Candida and Rhizopus Sp. While isolates after fermentation include Klebsiella, Serratia, Mucor, Aspergillus and Saccharomyces Spp. the result revealed that sugarcane had the highest production potential of bioethanol (15mls), compared to cassava produced with bioethanol production of 12mls. However, the combination of maize, cassava and sugarcane produced (10mls) of bioethanol while the lowest yield was obtained from maize which was 4mls. The results obtained also revealed that the bioethanol yield from maize was very weak compared to the yield from sugarcane that was very strong.  A total of 63mls of bioethanol was produced from the substrates and their combination. This study revealed that the three substrates can be used to produce bioethanol. This thus suggests that, the studied substrates with high yield of bioethanol especially sugarcane can be harnessed for commercial production, hence the need for further research.
