Nutrient leaching and end product accumulation in plastic composite supports for L-(+)-lactic Acid biofilm fermentation.

Abstract

Investigations on the leachate bioavailability, leaching rate, and lactic acid accumulation properties of plastic composite supports (PCS) were essential for large-scale or long-term lactic acid fermentation. Leachates from PCS and polypropylene discs (controls) were analyzed by the micro-Kjeldahl method; by absorbances at 260, 275, and 280 nm; and by… (More)
