  • Bioconversion of brewer’s spent grains to bioethanol 

    White, Jane S.; Yohannan, Biju K.; Walker, Graeme M. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008-11)
    Spent grains (SG), the residue remaining after extraction of wort, are a major by-product of brewing. This lignocelluose-rich biomass may provide a source of sugars for fuel ethanol fermentations. Dilute acid and enzyme ...
  • Bioconversion of degraded husked sorghum grains to ethanol 

    Nasidi, Muhammad; Agu, Reginald C.; Deeni, Yusuf Y.; Giginyu, Idris B.; Walker, Graeme M. (De Gruyter, 2015-08-18)
    Efficient starch saccharification is an essential step towards achieving improved ethanol yields by fermentation. Sorghum grains are important starch sources for bioconversion to ethanol. In the present study, disease ...
  • Evaluation of a Brazilian fuel alcohol yeast strain for Scotch whisky fermentations 

    de Amorim Neto, H. Berbert; Yohannan, B. K.; Bringhurst, T. A.; Brosnan, J. M.; Pearson, S. Y.; Walker, J. W.; Walker, Graeme M. (Institute & Guild of Brewing, 2009)
    Traditionally, distilling companies in Scotland have employed a very limited number of yeast strains in the production of alcohol for Scotch whiskies. Recent changes such as the decline in availability of brewers’ yeast ...
  • Fermentation of stalk juices from different Nigerian sorghum cultivars to ethanol 

    Nasidi, Muhammad; Agu, Reginald; Deeni, Yusuf Y.; Walker, Graeme M. (De Gruyter, 2013-08)
    For improved production of ethanol from sorghum stalk juice fermentation, cultivation location and cultivar type are important factors to consider. In the present study, SSV2 and KSV8 sorghum cultivars were cultivated in ...
  • Improved production of ethanol using bagasse from different sorghum cultivars 

    Nasidi, Muhammad; Agu, Reginald; Deeni, Yusuf Y.; Walker, Graeme M. (Elsevier, 2015-01)
    For improved production of ethanol from whole sorghum residues, physico-chemical compositions and fermentation characteristics of the substrates are important factors to consider. In the present study, Nigerian sorghum ...
  • Lignocellulose to fuel alcohol: current trends 

    Walker, Graeme M. (Society for General Microbiology, 2013-11)
  • Yeasts 

    Walker, Graeme M. (Elsevier/Academic Press, 2009-07)
    Yeasts are eukaryotic unicellular microfungi that are widely distributed in the natural environment. Around 1000 yeast species are known, but this represents only a fraction of yeast biodiversity on Earth. The fermentative ...
  • Yeasts 

    Walker, Graeme M. (Elsevier Inc., 2009-02)
    Yeasts are eukaryotic unicellular microfungi that are widely distributed in the natural environment. Around 1000 yeast species are known, but this represents only a fraction of yeast biodiversity on Earth. The fermentative ...
  • Yeasts 

    Walker, Graeme M. (Academic Press, 2011)
    Yeasts are eukaryotic unicellular microfungi that are widely distributed in the natural environment. Around 1500 yeast species have been characterised, but this represents only a fraction (<1%) of yeast biodiversity on ...
