Culture conditions involving variations in carbon and nitrogen sources and different C:N ratios were examined with the aim of increasing productivity in the process of rhamnolipid synthesis by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In addition to the differences in productivity, the use of different carbon sources resulted in several proportions related to the types of(More)
The Pseudomonas aeruginosa PA1 strain, isolated from the water of oil production in Sergipe, Northeast Brazil, was evaluated as a potential rhamnolipid type of biosurfactant producer. The production of biosurfactants was investigated using different carbon sources (n-hexadecane, paraffin oil, glycerol, and babassu oil) and inoculum concentrations(More)
The present study aimed at maximizing cellulase production by Penicillium funiculosum using sequential experimental design methodology for optimizing the concentrations of nitrogen sources. Three sequential experimental designs were performed. The first and the second series of experiments consisted of a 2(4) and a 2(3) factorial designs, respectively, and(More)
Rhamnolipids have been pointed out as promising biosurfactants. The most studied microorganisms for the aerobic production of these molecules are the bacteria of the genus Pseudomonas. The aim of this work was to produce a rhamnolipid-type biosurfactant in a bench-scale bioreactor by one strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from oil environments. To(More)
This study aimed to produce a cellulase blend and to evaluate its application in a simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF) process for second generation ethanol production from sugar cane bagasse. The sugar cane bagasse was subjected to pretreatments (diluted acid and alkaline), as for disorganizing the ligocellulosic complex, and making the(More)
The production of biosurfactant by Rhodococcus erythropolis during the growth on glycerol was investigated. The process was carried out at 28 degrees C in a 1.5-L bioreactor using glycerol as carbon source. The bioprocess was monitored through measurements of biosurfactant concentration and glycerol consumption. After 51 h of cultivation, 1.7 g/L of(More)
