The availability and demand of biosynthetic energy (ATP) is an important factor in the regulation of solvent production in steady state continuous cultures of Clostridium acetobutylicum. The effect of biomass recycle at a variety of dilution rates and recycle ratios under both glucose and non-glucose limited conditions on product yields and selectivities has been investigated. Under conditions of non-glucose limitation, when the ATP supply is not growth-limiting, a lower growth rate imposed by… CONTINUE READING
