The residual biomass obtained from the production of Cocos nucifera L. (coconut) is a potential source of feedstock for bioethanol production. Even though coconut hydrolysates for ethanol production have previously been obtained, high-solid loads to obtain high sugar and ethanol levels remain a challenge. We investigated the use of a fed-batch regime in the(More)
The use of commercial-grade nutrients such as agricultural fertilizers is important for commercial microalgae cultivation, and this is particularly the case for biofuel production which is associated with low added value. Nitrogen is a very important macronutrient in microalgae cultivation, and ammonium sources are cheaper than nitrate sources. However, the(More)
Background The cell wall (CW) is one of the most important structures of the yeast cell, accounting for up to 30% of its dry weight. This organelle determines cellular morphology, affords mechanical protection and provides osmotic support. The yeast CW is a dynamic structure susceptible to many modifications, adjusting its composition and thickness to(More)
High hydrostatic pressure (HHP) is successfully applied in several industrial segments, as in vaccine production and food conservation. The response of microorganisms to HHP treatment resemble the responses of other stresses with industrial relevance, like osmotic, temperature and ethanol, which make the HHP a valuable tool in biotechnology research, as in(More)
Methods In this study we performed a microarray analysis in a distillery Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain (BT0510) submitted to sublethal pressure treatment of 50 MPa for 30 min at room temperature, followed by incubation for 5, 10 and 15 min at room pressure (0.1 MPa). The transcription of the genes involved in central carbon metabolism in response to HHP(More)
Cocos nucifera L., coconut, is a palm of high importance in the food industry, but a considerable part of the biomass is inedible. In this study, the pretreatment and saccharification parameters NaOH solution, pretreatment duration and enzyme load were evaluated for the production of hydrolysates from green coconut mesocarp using 18% (w/v) total solids(More)
