In wet milling, maize kernels are soaked in water (or dilute acid) to separate the cereal into starch, gluten, protein, oil, and fiber prior to starch conversion to ethanol. The wet-milling operation is more elaborate because the grain must be separated into its components. After milling, the corn is heated in a solution of water 28 3 Production of Bioethanol and sulfur dioxide for 24–48 h to loosen the germ and the hull fiber. The germ is then removed from the kernel, and corn oil is extracted from the germ.

Pretreatment affects the structure of biomass by solubilizing hemicellulose, reducing crystallinity and increase the available surface area and pore volume of the substrate. Pretreatment has been considered as one of the most expensive processing steps in biomass to lowering the cost of pretreatment process through extensive R&D approaches. Pretreatment of cellulosic biomass in costeffective manner is a major challenge of cellulose to ethanol technology research and development. Native lignocellulosic biomass is extremely recalcitrant to enzymatic digestion.

1996). Ideally, the cell density should be kept at a level providing maximum ethanol productivity and yield. Continuous fermentation can be performed in different kind of bioreactors—stirred tank reactors (single or series) or plug flow reactors. Continuous fermentation often gives a higher productivity than batch fermentation, but at low dilution rates which offers the highest productivities. Continuous operation offers ease of control and is less labor intensive than batch operation. However, contamination is more serious in this operation.
