BACKGROUND Glycerol is currently an over-produced chemical that can be used as substrate for the production of high value products such as 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PDO) in fermentation processes. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of initial pH on a batch mixed culture fermentation of glycerol, considering both the bacterial community(More)
Electro-fermentation (EF) is a novel process that consists of electrochemically controlling microbial fermentative metabolism with electrodes. The electrodes can act as either electron sinks or sources that allow unbalanced fermentation. They can also modify the medium by changing the redox balance. Such electrochemical control exerts significant effects(More)
Interspecies electron transfer is a common way to couple metabolic energy balances between different species in mixed culture consortia. Direct interspecies electron transfer (DIET) mechanism has been recently characterised with Geobacter species which couple the electron balance with other species through physical contacts. Using this mechanism could be an(More)
Electro-fermentation is a new technique that could be used to influence the global metabolism in mixed-culture fermentation. In this study, a mixed-culture cathodic electro-fermentation of glycerol was investigated. Both microbial community structure and metabolic patterns were altered when compared to standard fermentation. This microbial population shift(More)
Extracellular electron transfer (EET) is a mechanism that allows energetic coupling between two microorganisms or between a microorganism and an electrode surface. EET is either supported by direct physical contacts or mediated by electron shuttles. So far, studies dealing with interspecies EET (so-called IET) have mainly focused on possible syntrophic(More)
