High productivity ethanol fermentation on a mineral medium using a flocculent strain ofZymomonas mobilis


A flocculent strain ofZymomonas mobilis (ZM4F JM1) was isolated in continuous culture. The parent strain, ZM4F, had lost its flocculating properties. The isolation was done in a conical fermentor at high dilution rate. Ethanol production by the new strain was then compared on a rich and mineral medium. The mineral medium showed high performance and could be… (More)
