[Citric acid is one of the most commonly used organic acids in food and pharmaceutical industries.] Citric acid production by Aspergillus niger 16 grown by solid state fermentation on sugarcane bagasse fortified with sucrose was studied. Ethanol and coconut oil at 3% v/w increased citric acid production. Fluoroacetate at a concn. of 1.0 mg/15 g bagasse enhanced the yield of citric acid significantly. Addition of ethanol and fluoroacetate after 6 h growth gave max. conversion.
