BACKGROUND: A great amount of wastewater with high contents of chemical oxygen demand (COD) are produced by ethanol production. It would be useful to utilize distillery wastewater to produce L-lactic acid, which could be a high additional value byproduct of ethanol production. The fermentation process of L-lactic acid production by a newly isolated Enterococcus hawaiiensis CICIM-CU B0114 is reported for the first time. RESULTS: The strain produced 56 g L−1 of L-lactic acid after… CONTINUE READING
