Production of acetic acid from agricultural wastes, by A. Alian, Zambia Journal of Science & Technology, Vol.2, no.2, April 1977, Pg. 16-20.


Molasses, mpundu waste and mango waste were investigated to determine their suitability for acetic acid production. Acetic acid was also prepared from a synthetic medium for comparison. A locally isolated bacterial culture from guava wine was used in the study and was found to be more active than the pure culture. Molasses was found to be better than the other two wastes and the synthetic medium for both growth of cells and acid formation.
