Microbial kinetics of Clostridium termitidis on cellobiose and glucose for biohydrogen production


To determine Monod kinetics parameters (µmax, Ks, kd and YX/S) of the mesophilic H2 producer Clostridium termitidis grown on glucose and cellobiose by modeling in MATLAB. Maximum specific growth rates (µmax) were 0.22 and 0.24 h−1 for glucose and cellobiose respectively; saturation constants (Ks) were 0.17 and 0.38 g l−1 respectively and the biomass yields… (More)
