Production of acetic acid by Acetogenium kivui


The formation of acetic acid by the thermophilic nonsporeforming homoacetogenic bacterium Acetogenium kivui was studied under various conditions. In pH-controlled batch fermentation at pH 6.4 this bacterium was able to produce up to 625 mM of acetic acid from glucose within 50–60 h. The value of μ max obtained was about 0.17 h-1, the yield was about 2.55… (More)
