Microbial fermentation is the key to industrial biotechnology. Most fermentation processes are sensitive to microbial contamination and require an energy intensive sterilization process. The majority of microbial fermentations can only be conducted over a short period of time in a batch or fed‐batch culture, further increasing energy consumption and process complexity, and these factors contribute to the high costs of bio‐products. In an effort to make bio‐products more economically competitive… Expand
Non-sterile fermentations for the economical biochemical conversion of renewable feedstocks
TLDR
Non-sterile fermentation offers several benefits compared to sterile fermentation, including elimination of sterility, reduced maintenance requirements, relatively simple bioreactor design, and simplified operation, which makes it a practical platform for low cost, large volume production of biofuels and bulk chemicals.
