Glycerol is an effective carbon source for the production of scl- and mcl-polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) by Pseudomonas spp. P. mediterranea 9.1 (CFBP 5447) synthesizes an amorphous mcl-PHA when grown on crude glycerol, whereas on both reagent grade (RG) and partially refined (PR) glycerol, it produces two very similar distinctive mcl-PHAs with the unusual(More)
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are polyesters synthesized by numerous bacteria as an intracellular carbon and energy storage compounds in the cytoplasm of cells. To cut down the cost of production and optimize the PHA/dried cell weight different concentrations (1, 2 and 5 %) of refined glycerol and a crude glycerol from biodiesel process, were used as carbon(More)
