Kinetic modeling of biosurfactant production by Bacillus subtilis N3-1P using brewery waste
In this study, the indigenous Bacillus subtilis N3-1P strain and a local brewery waste as the carbon source were used to produce a biosurfactant and the experimental and predicted model showed good agreement.

Improvement of Biosurfactant Production by Microbial Strains Through Supplementation of Hydrophobic Substrates
The result of the study showed that the presence of optimal hydrophobic substrates in the growth medium triggered release of more biosurfactant through their inductive effect, which shows a promising potential of the approach for large scale viable biosurFactant production.
Response surface methodology-based optimization of biosurfactant production from isolated Bacillus aryabhattai strain ZDY2
Biosurfactant demonstrated antimicrobial activity against Salmonella typhimurium, Escherichia coli, Micrococcus luteus, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida tropicalis, and found application in healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.
Microbial enhanced oil recovery: interfacial tension and biosurfactant-bacteria growth
Microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) is a method that utilises bacteria or bioproducts to increase oil recovery at the tertiary stage. Clostridium sp. produces biosurfactant that alters rock–fluid


Kinetic study of biosurfactant production by Bacillus subtilis LAMI005 grown in clarified cashew apple juice.
Optimizing carbon/nitrogen ratio for biosurfactant production by a Bacillus subtilis strain
A Bacillus subtilis strain isolated from contaminated soil from a refinery has been screened for biosurfactant production in crystal sugar (sucrose) with different nitrogen sources and a suitable model has been developed, having presented great accordance experimental data.
Enhanced Production of Surfactin from Bacillussubtilis by Addition of Solid Carriers
Addition of a small quantity of solid porous carriers into fermentation broth significantly increased surfactin production with Bacillus subtilis ATCC 21332, primarily attributed to stimulation of cell growth due to the presence of activated carbon carriers.

Biosurfactants are more effective, selective, environmentally friendly, and stable than many synthetic surfactants, and the most promising applications are cleaning of oil-contaminated tankers, oil spill management, transportation of heavy crude oil, enhanced oil recovery, recovery of crude oil from sludge, and bioremediation of sites contaminated with hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and other pollutants.
Cost Analysis of Ethanol Production from Willow Using Recombinant Escherichia coli
This study comprises a technical and economic analysis of the production of fuel ethanol by fermentation of a pentose‐rich hydrolysate with recombinant Escherichia coli, strain KO11, indicating potentially good economy.
Kinetic Modeling of Ethanol Production by Scheffersomyces stipitis from Xylose
This work focuses on the kinetics of ethanol production by Scheffersomyces stipitis on xylose with the development of a mathematical model considering the effect of substrate and product concentrations on growth rate, which fitted satisfactorily the experimental data.
