Debaryomyces hansenii cells were entrapped in Ca-alginate beads and used for producing xylitol from wood hydrolyzates. Batch experiments showed that bioconversion was severely hindered when Ca-alginate beads were hardened with Al3+ solutions. As an alternative to Al3+ hardening, the improvements in both mechanical stability of bioparticles and fermenting ability of the immobilized system derived from using increased concentrations of sodium alginate were assessed. The best results were obtained… CONTINUE READING
