An immobilization technique has been developed for a packed bed fermenter which is being considered as one stage of a process for the production of fuel-grade ethanol from sugar solutions. Relatively inexpensive beech wood chips have been successfully used as the support material and relatively high cell loadings of 188 mg DW cells/g DW support have been achieved for a test system of Saccharomyces cerevisiae cultures. No washout of adsorbed cells occurs below a superficial liquid velocity of 8… CONTINUE READING
