This work studied on the feasibility on furfural production using biological process. The mixture of corncob and urine was used as fermented material. The experiment used a 34 L-thermal plastic reactors with polystyrene as insulator. The experiment was divided into 2 parts, the first part studied on comparing the two processes which were aerobic and anaerobic processes and the second part studied on comparing the solvents for furfural extraction which were water and acid. The...
