Shellfish shell waste has high protein (39.6%), Chitin (22.6%) and ash (28.1%). Bioconversion of Chitin into glucosamine through cold fermentation using inherent enzymes and microbes using molasses as a substance was investigated. Cold fermentation has been envisaged as one of the most eco-friendly, safe, technologically flexible and economically viable alternative method for bio-refinement.
