Korea - Lignocellulosic wastes available in abundance can be excellent substrates for the production of cellulase. Different types of substrates and various pretreatments were used to improve the production of cellulase. The stean-exploded wood chip gave the highest activities of FPase (0.84 IU/mL) and CMCase (6.51U/mL) in the shakeflask culture. In 30 L bioreactor the steam-exploded wood chip and residue after saccharification gave the FPase activity (0.72 IU/mL) and the CMCase activity (6.3 IU/mL), respectively, similar those obtained in lactose.
