Efficient co‐production of propionic acid and succinic acid by Propionibacterium acidipropionici using membrane separation coupled technology

To improve the fermentation efficiency of Propionibacterium acidipropionici, a semi‐continuous coupled fermentation process was established to achieve co‐production of propionic acid (PA) and

Microbial production of Propionic and Succinic acid from Sorbitol using Propionibacterium acidipropionici

Three sequential fermentative batches were carried out with cell recycle in four simultaneously operating bioreactors maintained at pH 6.5, 30°C, and 100 rpm. P. acidipropionici ATCC 4875 was able to

High cell density propionic acid fermentation with an acid tolerant strain of Propionibacterium acidipropionici

A highly efficient and stable high cell density (HCD) fermentation process with cell recycle by centrifugation was developed for propionic acid production from glucose using an acid‐tolerant strain of Propionibacterium acidipropionici, which had a higher specific growth rate, productivity, and acid tolerance compared to the wild type ATCC 4875.

Optimized 1,3-propanediol production from crude glycerol using mixed cultures in batch and continuous reactors

The production of 1,3-propanediol from crude glycerol and mixed anaerobic sludge was investigated in batch experiments and continuous reactors and the highest 1, 3-PD yields occurred for high concentrations of vitamin B12 and low levels of KH2PO4, reaching 0.57 g g−1 glycerols consumed.

Corn steep liquor shows promise as an inexpensive medium for production of both acids by immobilized cells of propionibacteria in batch, fed-batch, and continuous fermentation.

Enhanced propionic acid fermentation by Propionibacterium acidipropionici mutant obtained by adaptation in a fibrous-bed bioreactor.

The enhanced propionic acid production from glucose by P. acidipropionici was thus attributed to both a high viable cell density maintained in the reactor and favorable mutations resulted from adaptation by cell immobilization in the FBB.

Batch Fermentation Model of Propionic Acid Production by Propionibacterium acidipropionici in Different Carbon Sources

PA production by Propionibacterium acidipropionici ATCC 4965 was studied using a basal medium with sugarcane molasses, glycerol or lactate, and acetic acid emerged as an undesirable by-product for further PA purification when using the other two carbon sources.

Production of propionic acid using a xylose utilizingPropionibacterium

The kinetics ofP. acidipropionici (ATCC25562), a xylose-utilizing rumen microorganism, was studied to assess its use for propionic acid production from wood hydrolyzates.Propionic acid has been shown

Propionic acid fermentation from glycerol: comparison with conventional substrates

Abstract Instead of the conventional carbon sources used for propionic acid biosynthesis, the utilization of glycerol is considered here, since the metabolic pathway involved in the conversion of

Propionic acid fermentation of glycerol and glucose by Propionibacterium acidipropionici and Propionibacterium freudenreichii ssp.shermanii

Results tend to show that glycerol could be an excellent alternative to conventional carbon sources such as carbohydrates for propionic acid production, and could indicate a particular metabolism for P. shermanii oriented towards the production of other specific components.

Microbial production of propionic acid and vitamin B12 using molasses or sugar

A two-stage fermentation process was developed for the conversion of sugar or molasses of various types to propionic acid and vitamin B12 and the concentration of acetic acid only increases slightly when the cell concentration is increased.

Influence of different vitamin‐nitrogen sources on cell growth and propionic acid production from sucrose by Propionibacterium shermanii

Cell growth and organic acid production by Propionibacteria are dependent on the vitamin-nitrogen source in the culture medium. Final cell and propionic acid concentrations produced by

Extractive Fermentation for Enhanced Propionic Acid Production from Lactose by Propionibacterium acidipropionici

An extractive fermentation process using an amine extractant and a hollow‐fiber membrane extractor to selectively remove propionic acid from the fermentation broth was developed to produce propionate from lactose and gave consistent long‐term performance over the 1.5‐month period studied.
