Abstract

Paper, which is one of the largest constituent of Municipal solid waste, has become a severe problem in
developed and developing countries due to the shrinking land fill capacity. It is very important and challenging task in
managing the solid waste. The Newspaper which is a cellulosic material is the potential source of Ethanol. The main
objectives of the current project is, to minimize the newspaper load on municipal solid waste by efficiently utilizi ng the
waste news paper in the production of Bioethanol, to optimize the pretreatment process for increasing the efficiency of
bacterial hydrolysis also in the efficient conversion of Cellulose to sugars from cellulose degrading micro organisms. In
this paper efforts are made to optimize the pretreatment process which helped to separate Lignin, Hemicelluloses and
Cellulose and enhance the hydrolysis process. The optimized condition for the pretreatment was found to be 1.1%
concentration of H2SO4 at 121ºC and 60 minutes. The bacteria Cytophaga was used for hydrolysis process, which helped
in converting the cellulose to sugars and was analyzed using HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography.
