Sporomusa ovata DSM-2662 produces high rate of acetate during microbial electrosynthesis (MES) by reducing CO2 with electrons coming from a cathode. Here, we investigated other Sporomusa for MES with cathode potential set at -690mVvsSHE to establish if this capacity is conserved among this genus and to identify more performant strains. S. ovata DSM-2663 produced acetate 1.8-fold faster than S. ovata DSM-2662. On the contrary, S. ovata DSM-3300 was 2.7-fold slower whereas Sporomusa aerivorans… CONTINUE READING
