The aim of the book is to provide an in depth study of the principles of fermentation technology and recent advances and developments in the field of fermentation technology focusing on industrial applications. The entire presentation has been divided in three section comprising 24 chapters from the eminent experts from all over the world. The text is supported by numerous clear informative diagrams. The book would be of great interest to the students and researchers of applied biology biotechnology microbiology biochemical and chemical engineering. 672 pp.
The present invention relates to methods of obtaining Z. mobilis mutant strains that are more tolerant to one or more inhibitors or more capable of efficiently fermenting one or more carbohydrates. Such inhibitors include ethanol, aliphatic …s, such as acetic …, formic …; furan derivatives, such as 2-furaldehyde, 2-furoic …; and phenolic compounds, such as vanillin and hydroxybenzoic …. Such carbohydrates may include xylose, arabinose, mannose and mixtures thereof. These mutant strains may be employed to, for example, effectively and efficiently prepare ethanol from biomass.
The present invention relates to methods of reducing the toxicity of lignocellulosic hydrolysates which comprise one or more inhibitors. One method reduces the amount of furfural inhibitor leading to a more effective process. Another method reduces the amount of xylitol produced during the fermentation of xylose present in lignocellulosic hydrolysates. Naturally occurring aldo/keto reductase enzymes, as well as, enzymes produced by recombinant cells or by selective adaptation may be employed.
