Abstract : Response surface methodology based on central composite design was applied to optimize the fermentation conditions of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (MTCC 170) for maximum ethanol recovery. The influence of process parameters were investigated by design expert software, optimum conditions were found to be pH of 3.5, temperature of 35ºC and initial sugar concentration of 4% glucose. By optimizing with coded factor the maximum ethanol production observed by the model was 10.5 g/l ethanol. This design proved to be optimization of culture conditions and increase the ethanol productivity.
