Abstract

Nipa sap is one of the efficient feedstocks for ethanol production. Response surface methodology with the central composite design was used to design and optimize the sap preparation. The main factors were initial pH (4.5 - 6.5), warming temperature (30 - 60°C) and time (5 - 30 min). The effects of the sap preparation on the content of total sugar were studied providing the high determination coefficient, R2 = 0.942. The optimum total sugar, 411 g/L, was obtained at an initial pH of 4.9 and at a temperature of 54°C for 25 min.
