In order to develop more economic processes, continuous ethanol fermentation from starchy raw materials in a pilot scale multi-stage CSTR was investigated. Ethanol fermentation could be successfully operated for 30 days with naked barley and 60 days with cassava, respectively. Starchy raw materials used for this study were ground and passed through a 20-mesh sieve for low temperature cooking. Under the optimized conditions, the overall productivity of cassava was $1.27g/{\ell}{\cdot}h$ with an ethanol concentration of 9.51% (v/v), which was higher about 2 times than that obtained from a conventional batch system in industrial scale.
