Biosurfactants (BSs) are produced in abundance from various feedstocks by diverse microorganisms, and are used in various applications. In this paper, we describe a new yeast isolate that produces glycolipid-BSs from glycerol, with the aim of enhancing the utilization of the surplus glycerol produced by the oleo-chemical industry. As a result of the screening, strain ZM1502 was obtained as a potential producer of BS from glycerol. Based on TLC analysis, the strain produced glycolipid BSs… Expand
Efficient Production of Acid-Form Sophorolipids from Waste Glycerol and Fatty Acid Methyl Esters by Candida floricola.
Efficient acid-form SL production by C. floricola could have a great impact on the development of bio-industrial processes using waste glycerol as a substrate, and other suitable hydrophobic substrates for SL production were explored on site from oleo-chemical industries. Expand
Yeasts for Bioconversion of Crude Glycerol to High-Value Chemicals
Biodiesel production is a fast-growing industry. Biodiesel is obtained through transesterification of different kinds of oils with methanol. This process results in a formation of substantial amountsExpand
Innovative Production of Biosurfactant by Candida Tropicalis Ucp 1613 Through Solid-state Fermentation
Microbial surfactants are amphipathic molecules mainly produced by submerged fermentation, and capable of decreasing the surface and interfacial tension between two immiscible phases. However, theirExpand

The Wickerhamiella/Starmerella clade—A treasure trove for the study of the evolution of yeast metabolism
It is suggested that high‐density coverage of genome sequencing in this clade, combined with the possibility to conduct molecular genetics experiments in at least one species, has the potential to set the stage for yet more exciting discoveries concerning the evolution of yeast metabolism. Expand
Application of Glycolipid Biosurfactants as Surface Modifiers in Bioplastics.
Time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) analysis results showed that the MEL in MEL-B-containing thin PLA cast films was localized to a thin surface layer, which may suggest self-assembly of M EL-B and micro-phase separation between the PLA matrix and Mel-B domains. Expand

Glycolipid Biosurfactant Production from Waste Cooking Oils by Yeast: Review of Substrates, Producers and Products
Biosurfactants are a microbially synthesized alternative to synthetic surfactants, one of the most important bulk chemicals. Some yeast species are proven to be exceptional biosurfactant producers,Expand


Production of new types of sophorolipids by Candida batistae.
The phylogenetic approach should lead to the discovery of new biosurfactant producers, and the yeast product possessing high hydrophilicity may facilitate a broad range of applications for SLs. Expand
Sophorolipid biosynthesis from a biodiesel co-product stream
We applied a biodiesel co-product stream (BCS) as a fermentation feedstock for the microbial synthesis of sophorolipids (SL). The BCS was composed of 40% glycerol, 34% hexane-solubles (made up of 92%Expand
Production of sophorose lipid by Candida (Torulopsis) apicola grown on glucose
It was shown that the cell wall-bound and the liberated lactonic sophorose lipid were identical and had a hydroxy Δ 8 -hexadecenoic acid backbone and the physiological significance of this lipid to act as extracellular carbon storage material was discussed. Expand
