Fermentation (stoichiometric) equations are derived for anaerobic fermentations of propionic-acid bacteria (of both the Propionibacterium and acrylate pathways) and for production of various oxychemicals (butanol, acetone, isopropanol, butanediol, butyrate, acetate, propionate, succinate, lactate, and acrylate) from pentoses, hexoses, and cellobiose. The derivations of the equations are based on the fermentation biochemistries of the various bacterial classes. The validity of the equations is… CONTINUE READING
