The microbiological hydrolysis of lignocellulose waste materials, using enzymatic biopreparations and its anaerobic processing, is a promising strategy for the efficient use of renewable energy sources. This article presents the optimization of microbiological media to improve cellulase production by Trichoderma atroviride G79/11 for further application as a cellulolytic biopreparation. The characterization of T. atroviride phenotypic microarrays was performed using the Biolog® PM plates approach. The optimization investigations were aimed at increasing the efficiency of the cellulolytic enzyme production involved in the solid-state fermentation type medium. This medium was based on dried sugar beet and wheat bran, as well as two liquid media based on mineral and soy flour, cellulose, and lactose (MSCL). The basic components of the MSCL were optimized. The study involved optimization of the content of the carbon and nitrogen source and the detergent additive. In order to increase the cellulase production, proper T. atroviride G79/11 culture conditions were established.
