Abstract: The present study aims to evaluate conditions for bioethanol production from fruit residues of Nauclea latifolia (Sm.). To do this, the juice obtained from the fruit residues of Nauclea latifolia, initially pretreated at 200 °C and hydrolyzed in the presence of enzyme (Pectinase), was fermented with three different commercial strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Angel Brand Thermal-tolerant alcohol active dry yeast, Angel Brand Super alcohol active dry yeast, Angel Super alcohol active dry yeast). The monitoring of the kinetic parameters of fermentation indicated that the production yields depend on the yeast strains and the presence of compounds used as a growth factor such as Urea. The best yield of 34.48 ml.kg-1 is obtained with Angel Brand Super alcohol active dry yeast strains, with addition of growth factor to the fermentation medium. The fruit residues of Nauclea latifolia (Sm.) hydrolyzed by the enzymatic process, therefore constitute an interesting substrate which can be used as alternative sources for bioethanol production.
