My research focuses on the utilizing of sago starch as a raw material for producing value added product such as ethanol and lactate via fermentation process. The studies involved in identifying the optimum parameters for producing higher product yield which are conducted under batch, fed batch and continuous fermentation systems.
Currently, my progress research is focused on several aspects of the lactate production such as:
(1) Utilizing Natural Rubber Serum Powder (NRSP) as a protein source
(2) Effects of adding Ca2+ on cell growth
(3) Effects of the Turbidostat System
