AIMS We investigated the production of alternatives to fuel oil through the bacterial metabolism of organic waste. The availability for this purpose of various sources of organic waste for hydrocarbon production by the alkane-producing bacterium, Vibrio furnissii M1, was examined. METHODS AND RESULTS We screened 17 authentic compounds which can generally be found in organic waste for their hydrocarbon production. Carbon (3 mmol) in a 50-ml culture with acetic acid, lactic acid, butyric acid… CONTINUE READING
