My name is Maitry Mistry, and I am currently a grade 8 student in Winnipeg, MB. This is my second year doing a science fair project. In the 2 years, I have gone to over 5 science fairs and have achieved outstanding results which have motivated me to go further in my research.The inspiration for my project came from the waste surrounding us. I wanted to use the waste products for something beneficial to our community and environment. As a student, I plan to continue with this topic and study in the Microbiology field. I have not only learnt about the Microbial process but have been fortunate to work with U of M and carry out my experiment. I am very privileged to have an opportunity to share my results and research with huge crowds, passing on my learning and new discoveries.

Fermentation of thin stillage for biofuel production by Clostridium thermocellum
Region:Manitoba Schools Science Symposium
City:Winnipeg, MB
School:Acadia School
Abstract:The experiment is to unveil the potential of TS as an alternative growth medium in cellulosic bio fuels production. The thermophilic bacterium Clostridium thermocellum a candidate for consolidated bio-processing was used to produce fuels such as H2 and ethanol. In my experiment, various concentrations (50-400 g/L) of TS was tested with or without added cellulose replacing the ingredients of growth medium.
