UNLABELLED BACKGROUND Acetoin and 2,3-butanediol are two important biorefinery platform chemicals. They are currently fermented below 40°C using mesophilic strains, but the processes often suffer from bacterial contamination. RESULTS This work reports the isolation and identification of a novel aerobic Geobacillus strain XT15 capable of producing both(More)
This work characterized a novel 2,3-xylenol-utilizing Pseudomonas isolate XQ23. From 16S rRNA phylogenetic analysis, XQ23 was found to be a member of the Pseudomonas putida group. Most of its physiological characteristics also shared similarities to P. putida. Phenols were catabolized by the meta-cleavage pathway. The dependence of the specific growth rate(More)
Jiaozhou Bay is located on the southern coast of the Shandong Peninsula in East China. It separates Huangdao District from Qingdao City and borders on Jiaozhou City and Jiaonan City. It was polluted by nearby industries. Tangdao Bay, neighbored to Jiaozhou Bay along the Phoenix Peninsula, is dedicated to Tourism development. This study investigated the(More)
In the effluents of a biologically treated wastewater from a heavy oil-refining plant, C5-C8 fatty acids including pentanoic acid, hexanoic acid, heptanoic acid, octanoic acid, and 2-methylbutanoic acid are often detected. As these residual fatty acids can cause further air and water pollution, a new Myroides isolate ZB35 from activated sludge was explored(More)
Consumers prefer biotechnological food products with high nutritional values and good flavors. Solid-state fermentation is a commonly used technique with a long history. In the present study, Myroides sp. ZB35 was used in solid-state fermentative production of aroma volatiles on a rice medium. Using the headspace solid phase microextraction coupled with gas(More)
