Candida shehatae NCL-3501 utilized glucose and xylose efficiently in batch cultures. The specific rate of ethanol production was higher with mixtures of glucose and xylose (0.64-0.83 g g-1 cells d-1) compared to that with individual sugars (0.38-0.58 g g-1 cells d-1). Although the optimum temperature for growth was 30 degrees C, this strain grew and produced appreciable levels of ethanol at 45 degrees C.
