  1. Diagram Back

  2. Maximization of Ethanol Yield and Adsorption of Heavy Metal Ions by Fruit Peels • Kara Newman Aman Mangalmurti • Soh Han Wei • Leong Qi Dong

  3. Problems • Dependence on fossil fuels leads to energy shortage • Bananas are being threatened by various diseases • Creation of organic fruit waste • Heavy metals in drinking water threaten well being of people, specifically in countries experiencing industrial growth

  4. Goals • Determine an order of filtration and ethanol production which maximizes the efficiency of fruit peels of bananas and mangoes • Determine which fruit peel, banana or mango, has better ion adsorption capabilities • Determine which fruit peel has a greater ethanol yield per amount of initial glucose

  5. Questions To Be Answered • Will adsorption of metal ions onto the fruit peel effect the ethanol yield of the fruit peel? • Vice Versa: Will initial ethanol production by the fruit peel effect the filtration capability of the fruit peel? • What protocol will maximize the efficiency of use of the fruit peel?

  6. Method Diagram • Compare different protocols (Protocol A & Protocol B) testing both ethanol production and adsorption capabilities of mangos vs bananas • Protocol A - Filtration then Ethanol Production • Protocol B - Ethanol Production then Filtration

  7. Experimental outline

  8. Procedure Ethanol Production • Growth of Z. mobilis • Immobilization of cells • Extraction of sugars from fruit peels • Determination of sugars in extracts • Ethanol fermentation by immobilized Z. mobilis cells • Determination of ethanol yield with the dichromate test Filtration • Adsorption of heavy metal ions • determination of final ion concentration with reagent kits

  9. Variables

  10. Progress So Far • Experimental Design has been constructed • A partial amount of the statistics has beenreviewed • Project has been separated for collaboration with HCI and AOS

  11. Data analysis The ethanol yield would be evaluate by comparing • µmol of ethanol per ml reducing sugar in fruit peels The heavy metal ion adsorption efficiency would be evaluated by comparing • The ratio of the final concentration of metal ion to the initial concentration • The % of heavy metal ions adsorbed

  12. Problems and Solutions • Original protocols for the project needed standardization for proper comparisons • Solution - Procedures were modified in order to be kept constant
