In tapioca solid waste treatment, the extraction process contains high concentration of starch that can be used to produce high quality products, e.g., bio ethanol or other alternative energy sources. A study on using the solid waste of tapioca industries was carried out, with emphasis on determining the composition of α- and gluco-amylase enzymes on the hydrolized processes of the solid waste of tapioca. The exact composition from both enzymes could increase the glucose yield. The best ratio between α- and gluco-amylase enzymes were 0.5%:0.5% with 1 hr liquefaction. The highest glucose reached 8.468 % and yielded 0.892 g glucose/g starch with starch conversion of 59.94%. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 7th European Congress of Chemical Engineering-7 and 19th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering CHISA (Prague, Czech Republic 8/28/2010-9/1/2010).
