Abstract

ABSTRACT

In this study, acid and enzymes were used to hydrolyze cassava peels to get reducing sugars. The values of energy and chemicals were calculated to determine cost expended on the hydrolysis. The results showed that the total energy used in acid and enzymes hydrolyses were 14.78 MJ and 3.45 MJ, respectively. The amount of reducing sugar recovered from acid and enzymes hydrolyses were 90.13% and 83.55%, respectively. Therefore, the study showed that recovery of sugar from cassava peels was better in terms of percentage yield and cost using acid hydrolysis. However, cost of energy consumption was better using enzyme hydrolysis.
