Author(s): Juliana M. Gasparotto, Raquel C. Kuhn, Edson L. Foletto, Rodrigo J.S. Jacques, Jerson V. C. Guedes, Sergio L. Jahn, Marcio A. Mazutti.


Solid-state fermentation has emerged as a potential technology for production of microbial products such as feed, fuel, food, industrial chemicals and pharmaceutical. This technology is worth of attention not only from researchers but also from industry, especially in the last two decades. Based on these aspects, a review of patents and scientific articles is presented to cover the application of solid-state fermentation on different areas, including process development, substrate and microorganism preparation, process modeling and design of bioreactors.

Keywords: Solid-state fermentation, bioreactor design, process and products, microorganisms, fermentation, sterilization, submerged fermentation technology, Bioreactor , Fermentable sugars, Microbial Organic fertilizer
