BACKGROUND Succinic acid is well established as bio-based platform chemical with production quantities expecting to increase exponentially within the next decade. Actinobacillus succinogenes is by far the most studied wild organism for producing succinic acid and is known for high yield and titre during production on various sugars in batch culture. At low(More)
A tubular recycle bioreactor was employed to ensure homogeneous shear conditions on the biofilm surface. Superficial liquid velocities of 0.19 ms(-1), 0.37 ms(-1), 0.55 ms(-1) and 3.65 ms(-1) were used. The highest velocity resulted in negligible cell attachment (chemostat) while the ratio of attached-to-total cell mass escalated as the superficial velocity(More)
