Abstract: This study presents ethanol production from mahula flowers in submerged fermentation (SmF) using immobilized cells of <i>Saccharomyces cerevisiae </i>(CTCRI strain) and <i>Zymomonas mobilis </i>(MTCC 92) in calcium alginate as beads. Maximum ethanol concentrations were 154.5 and 134.55 g kg-1 flowers using immobilized cells of <i>S. cerevisiae </i>and <i>Z. mobilis, </i>respectively. Immobilized cells of <i>S. cerevisiae </i>in calcium alginate beads were more effective (14.83% more yield) for ethanol production than immobilized cells of <i>Z. mobilis</i>.
