Bacterial cellulose (BC) with different morphologies was biosynthesized by Gluconacetobacter medellinensis strain under static and dynamic culture conditions using sugar cane juice and pineapple residues as sources of carbon and other nutrients. Hestrin and Schramm's standard culture medium was used as reference. The fermentation condition and resulting yield, physico-chemical properties, and morphology relationships of obtained cellulose were analyzed. Pineapple agroindustrial residues can be envisaged as an inexpensive and sustainable alternative resource for the production of different BC morphologies.
