Xylose mother liquor (XML) is a by-product of xylose production through acid hydrolysis from corncobs, which can be used potentially for alternative fermentation feedstock. Sixteen Clostridia including 13 wild-type, 1 industrial strain, and 2 genetically engineered strains were screened in XML, among which the industrial strain Clostridium acetobutylicum EA 2018 showed the highest titer of solvents (12.7 g/L) among non-genetic populations, whereas only 40% of the xylose was consumed.
