Abstract—Study of biodelignification of rice straw was investigated by using a fungus isolated from indigenous the straw. Identification of the fungus was characterized by 18s rRNA sequencing and included in the new species of Penicillium sp. strain apw-tt2. Ligninase production and cell growth was observed in incubation condition of Submerged Fermentation (SmF). Optimizations of the enzyme production condition were carried out by altering pH and temperature of the incubation medium. The results showed that the optimum conditions for biopulping are at 40˚C and pH 5. High ligninase production was observed at Day 4 with activity 571 U/ml with degraded lignin 66.3%. The quality of pulp showed that the new species is very effective in delignifying rice straw for pulping.
