  1. The addition of F. oxysporum biomass and enzyme system where tested for the fermentation of liquefied pretreated wheat straw. F. oxysporum enzymes were tested as a substitute of commercial enzymes and F. oxysporum biomass for its ability to cooperate with S. cerevisiae in ethanol production. SSCF stands for Simultaneous Saccharification and Co-Fermentation.
