The standard Hawking formula predicts the complete evaporation of black holes. Taking into account the effects of quantum gravity, we investigate the tunneling of fermions from a five-dimensional rotating black string. The temperature is not only determined by the string, but also affected by the quantum numbers of the emitted fermion and the effect of the extra spatial dimension. The quantum correction slows down the increase of the temperature, which naturally leads to a remnant in the evaporation.
