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 is a promising biofuel and valuable platform chemical that can be produced through fermentative conversion of glycerol. The initial fermentation conditions for butanol production from pure glycerol by Clostridium pasteurianum DSM 525 were optimized via a central composite design. The effect of inoculum age, initial cell density, initial pH of medium(More)
Economic realities for the rising industrial biofuel production have changed substantially during the low oil price period starting in the mid 2010's. Increased competition requires the sector to increase productivity through the reduction of low-value by-products and full utilization of all value and energy stored in their respective feedstock. Biodiesel(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)
