Ethanol-type fermentation from carbohydrate in high rate acidogenic reactor.

Abstract

It has been found, in this study, that a new ethanol-type fermentation can be obtained in a continuous flow, high-rate acidogenic reactor receiving molasses as the feed. The operating pH must be maintained at about 4.5 to avoid onset of propionic fermentation. The acidogenic reactor had a VSS level of 20 g/L and its organic loading was as high as 80 to 90… (More)
