Abstract The practicality of using sugarbeet juice as medium to grow Alcaligenes latus (ATCC 29714) for production of polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB), a biodegradable plastic, was explored in this study. Dilute sugarbeet juice, sugarbeet juice with partial and complete addition of nutrients other than sugar were used as culture media. Media with partial nutrient addition was shown to be optimal for PHB production, with final dry cell weight (DCW) 10.30 ± 1.01 g/L, PHB concentration 4.01 ± 0.95 g/L… CONTINUE READING
