In the modern era due to increasing fuel demand, prices of crude oil is increasing day by days. So the need for bioenergy sources is increasing in coming years. Of all the biomass present in the world lignocelluloses as industrial, forest and agricultural residues constitutes the major portion. The present study was focused to determine potential of fungus Penicillium oxalicum (Dal 5) for cellulase production on different commonly available lignocellulosic substrates (Rice straw, Wheat straw, Corn cob, Baggase, Sorghum straw), organic nitrogen source (Corn steep liquor).

Keywords: Bioenergy, Buffer, Cellulase, Enzyme, Substrate.
