Ethanol synthesis by using raw feed stock is being widely explored. Production of ethanol from waste food grains, fruit wastes, vegetable wastes, and sugar industry byproducts is being carried out on experimental, pilot plant and in some cases industrial scale. Ethanol has huge potential as fuel and is main compound in alcoholic beverages. It is most often used as a motor fuel, mainly as a bio fuel additive for gasoline. Bio ethanol can be made from very common crops such as sugar cane, potato, manioc and corn. In current research sugar molasses is used for ethanol synthesis.

Key words:Bacteria, molasses, purity, incubation, slant, fermentation.
