Lactate inhibits hydrolysis of polysaccharide-rich particulate organic waste.

This work reveals that, at pH 5-9, a lactate level of up to 30 g l(-1) retarded hydrolysis rates in polysaccharide-rich potato samples. Lactate substantially limited carbohydrate hydrolysis and enhanced the hydrolysis of proteins. Statistical analysis identified the significance of numerous process factors in substrate hydrolysis. At fixed pH, dissociated… CONTINUE READING
