Clostridium strain BOH3 is able to utilize 10 g/l of xylan in reinforced clostridial medium (RCM) and produce butanol and hydrogen. However, increasing xylan concentration to 30 g/l does not enhance the production of butanol and hydrogen due to insufficient expression of xylanase enzyme (27.5 U/mg). To enhance the xylanase activity, an optimized culture medium (OCM), which consists of sugarcane bagasse hydrolysate (11.75 g/l), ammonium sulfate (8.92 g/l) and iron (III) chloride (1.45 mM) is… CONTINUE READING
