Microbial lipids are an interesting feedstock for biodiesel. Their production from agricultural waste streams by fungi cultivated in solid-state fermentation may be attractive, but the yield of this process is still quite low. In this article, a mechanistic model is presented that describes growth, lipid production and lipid turnover in a culture of Umbelopsis isabellina on ?-carrageenan plates containing the monomers glucose and alanine as C-source and N-source, respectively, and improves the… CONTINUE READING
