In this study, the possibility of manipulating biopolymer composition in mixed culture polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) production from fermented molasses was assessed by studying the effects of substrate volatile fatty acid (VFA) composition and feeding regime (pulse wise versus continuous). It was found that the use of a continuous feeding strategy rather than a pulse feeding strategy can not only help mitigate the process constraints of the pulse-feeding strategy (resulting in higher specific and… CONTINUE READING
