Conversion of lignocellulosic hydrolysate to biofuels is impeded by the toxic effects of inhibitors that are generated during pretreatment and hydrolysis processes. Here we describe a wild-type Clostridium sp. strain BOH3 with high tolerance to the lignocellulose-derived inhibitors and its capability to transform these inhibitors. Strain BOH3 is capable of tolerating over 60 mM furfural, 60 mM hydroxymethylfurfural, and 6.6 mM vanillin, respectively, and is able to convert 53.74 ± 0.37 mM… 

Establishment of Kluyveromyces marxianus as a Microbial Cell Factory for Lignocellulosic Processes: Production of High Value Furan Derivatives

Results validate K. marxianus as a promising microbial platform in lignocellulosic biorefineries as a whole-cell biocatalyst to convert furfural and HMF into their derivatives, furfuryl alcohol and 2,5-bis(hydroxymethyl)furan (BHMF), with high yields and productivities.

Butanol–isopropanol fermentation with oxygen-tolerant Clostridium beijerinckii XH29

Results indicate that C. beijerinckii XH 29 is an excellent BI producer with great potential for industrial applications and a mutant obtained by ultraviolet mutagenesis produces higher levels of BI than the wild type strain using corn stover as a carbon source.



Simultaneous Fermentation of Glucose and Xylose to Butanol by Clostridium sp. Strain BOH3

ABSTRACT Cellulose and hemicellulose constitute the major components in sustainable feedstocks which could be used as substrates for biofuel generation. However, following hydrolysis to monomer

Direct conversion of xylan to butanol by a wild‐type Clostridium species strain G117

The unique ability of strain G117 to produce a considerable amount of butanol directly from xylan without producing undesirable fermentation byproducts opens the door to the possibility of cost‐effective biofuels production in a single step.

Overcoming inhibitors in a hemicellulosic hydrolysate: improving fermentability by feedstock detoxification and adaptation of Pichia stipitis

Results demonstrated the greatest fermentative improvement of 50% wood hydrolysate (v/v) by Pichia stipitis with activated charcoal treatment, and changes in carbohydrate utilization may be indicative of detoxification or tolerance activities related to proteins involved in glucose and xylose metabolism.

Butanol production from agricultural residues: Impact of degradation products on Clostridium beijerinckii growth and butanol fermentation

The effect of some of the lignocellulosic hydrolysate inhibitors associated with C. beijerinckii BA101 growth and acetone–butanol–ethanol (ABE) production decreased significantly and had stimulatory effect on the growth of the microorganism and ABE production.

Detoxification of Lignocellulose Hydrolysates: Biochemical and Metabolic Engineering Toward White Biotechnology

Chemical hydrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass (LB) produces a number of inhibitors in addition to sugars. These inhibitors include lignin-derived phenolics, carbohydrate-derived furans, and weak

Detoxification of model phenolic compounds in lignocellulosic hydrolysates with peroxidase for butanol production from Clostridium beijerinckii

Using peroxidase for the removal of model phenolic compounds, could be applied towards the detoxification of lignocellulosic hydrolysates for butanol fermentation.

Effect of selected aldehydes on the growth and fermentation of ethanologenic Escherichia coli.

Of the aldehydes tested, only furfural strongly inhibited ethanol production in vitro, and a comparison with published results for other microorganisms indicates that LY01 is equivalent or more resistant than other biocatalysts to the aaldehydes examined in this study.

Detoxification of wood hydrolysates with laccase and peroxidase from the white-rot fungus Trametes versicolor

A novel method to increase the fermentability of lignocellulosic hydrolysates: enzymatic detoxification, which indicates that the mechanism of laccase detoxification involves removal of monoaromatic phenolic compounds present in the hydrolysate, and supports the suggestion that phenolics are important inhibitors of the fermentation process.

Increased tolerance and conversion of inhibitors in lignocellulosic hydrolysates by Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Among the microorganisms that have been evaluated for lignocellulosic hydrolysate ethanol fermentation, the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae appears to be the least sensitive.
