In this study, a central composite design and response surface methodology were used to study the effect of various hydrolysis variables (temperature, pH, and time) on the acid hydrolysis of Jerusalem artichoke-derived inulin using three different mineral acids (HCl, H2SO4, and H3PO4). Numerical optimization was used to maximize the sugar yield of Jerusalem(More)
Butanol, produced via traditional acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation, suffers from low yield and productivity. In this article, a non-ABE butanol production process is reviewed. Clostridium pasteurianum has a non-biphasic metabolism, alternatively producing 1,3-propanediol (PDO)-butanol-ethanol, referred to as PBE fermentation. This review discusses(More)
