  journal={Chemical engineering transactions},
Whey generated in cheese manufacturing poses serious environmental issues that limit process profitability. The innovation in the dairy sector recognizes the "bio-refinery" as a key to successful handling of whey disposal and economic rise. Cheese whey valorisation is a complex process involving multiple technologies that might lead to value-added products (biomass, fine or bulk chemicals). This work focuses on the optimization of a fermentation process using whey as growth medium and carbon…

Effect of Nutrient Supplementation on Biobutanol Production from Cheese Whey by Abe (acetone–butanol–ethanol) Fermentation

Cheese whey is a liquid effluent obtained from the cheese manufacturing process, presenting a high volumetric production and high organic loads related to its lactose content. The aim of this

Cultivation of Aspergillus oryzae and Saccharomyces cerevisiae in Whey for the Production of Single-celled Protein Intended for Feeding Cattle

Evaluating the use of whole lactoserum as a culture medium for the production of biomass of microorganisms under different conditions and types of culture indicates similarity between those reported by other authors for whey of different origins.

l‐asparaginase production and enhancement by Sarocladium strictum: In vitro evaluation of anti‐cancerous properties

This study focuses on the characterization of an l‐asparaginase‐producing fungal strain and its role in the treatment of lymphoblastic leukaemia.



Metabolic engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae for lactose/whey fermentation

Emphasis is given in the present review on strain improvement for lactose-to-ethanol bioprocesses, namely flocculent yeast strains for continuous high- cell-density systems with enhanced ethanol productivity.

Production of Bakers' Yeast in Cheese Whey Ultrafiltrate

This process could permit the substitution of molasses by WU for the industrial production of bakers' yeast through fermentation of Streptococcus thermophilus or Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Lactose/whey utilization and ethanol production by transformed Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells

Fermentation studies with transformed yeast strains showed that the release of β‐galactosidase allowed an efficient growth on buffered media containing lactose as carbon source as well as on whey‐based media.

Valorisation of Cheese Whey, a By-Product from the Dairy Industry

This collection of articles is a timely contribution to issues relating to the food industry. The objective of this book is to provide knowledge appropriate for students, university researchers, and

Metabolic Engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Strategies and concepts for metabolic engineering using Saccharomyces cerevisiae illustrate all the categories of this multidisciplinary field: extension of substrate range, improvements of producitivity and yield, elimination of byproduct formation, improvement of process performance, and extensions of cellular properties.

An Examination of the Crabtree Effect in Saccharomyces cerevisiae: the Role of Respiratory Adaptation

Summary: The control of glycolysis and respiration in a strain of baker's yeast was quantified, including, for the first time, corrections obtained from carbon and redox balances which allowed for

Potential Air and Groundwater Pollution from Continuous High Land Application of Cheese Whey

Experiments were performed, using eighteen 280 cm deep soil columns with 20 cm inside diameter, to determine the relative amounts of nitrogenous compounds leached and volatilized from soils receiving

Identification and phylogeny of ascomycetous yeasts from analysis of nuclear large subunit (26S) ribosomal DNA partial sequences

Divergence in the variable D1/D2 domain of large subunit (26S) ribosomal DNA is generally sufficient to resolve individual species, resulting in the prediction that 55 currently recognized taxa are synonyms of earlier described species.
