The degradation of glycerol by Desulfovibrio carbinolicus and Desulfovibrio fructosovorans was tested in pure culture with sulfate and in coculture with Methanospirillum hungatei. Desulfovibrio carbinolicus degraded glycerol into 3-hydroxypropionate with the formation of sulfide in pure culture and methane in the coculture. The maximum growth rates were 0… CONTINUE READING
