Ethanol is generally produced by the fermentation of sugar cellulose and ligno-cellulose rich fruits and vegetable Ethanol reduces country’s dependence. The production of ethanol from waste which contain raw materials made of carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen. Ethanol is an economically demand for its utilization in chemical and biological ways .The fermented product have low cost productivity from different industrial waste. The present study deals with production of ethanol from yam pulp using baker’s yeast. The optimization is achieved in production of ethanol by fermented medium enriched with glucose and peptone.
