The influence of sucrose concentration on the specific ethanol production rate was studied during batch processes using the yeast strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae Hansen Sc 5. From experimental data a model could be derived for the simulataneous effect of substrate and product inhibition. It was found that both the decreases of fermentation activity of the cells caused by sucrose and ethanol have an additional relation to each other. This model also takes into consideration the fact that the maximum ethanol concentration P′ can't be realized at high substrate concentrations in a batch process. Compared to it sucrose concentrations below 100 g/l did not inhibit the ethanol production by the strain used in this investigation.
