This project aims to develop the feed component DDGS in an integrated the first and second generation ethanol production plant with fungi. Straw and bran will be pretreated with various pretreatments (which does not negatively affect the quality of the end product, DDGS), mixed with grains stillage and fermented with various edible zygomycetes and ascomycetes fungi to produce ethanol and simultaneously refine DDGS as a major byproduct.

The work will be carried out first in lab and then on larger scale in order to produce ca 100-500 kg DDGS in order to examine the product as feed component. These results will then be technically and economically evaluated for possible commercialization.
