Abstract: Rhizopus arrhizus, strain DAR 36017, produced l(+)-lactic acid in a simultaneous saccharification and fermentation process using starch waste effluents. Lactic acid at 19.5–44.3 g l–1 with a yield of 0.85–0.96 g g–1 was produced in 40 h using 20–60 g starch l–1. Supplementation of nitrogen source may be unnecessary if potato or corn starch waste effluent was used as a production medium.
