Butanol production from lignocellulosic biomass: revisiting fermentation performance indicators with exploratory data analysis
After just more than 100 years of history of industrial acetone–butanol–ethanol (ABE) fermentation, patented by Weizmann in the UK in 1915, butanol is again today considered a promising biofuel alternative based on several advantages compared to the more established biofuels ethanol and methanol. La...
Kinetic Study of Butanol Production from Mixtures of Glucose and Xylose and Investigation of Different Pre-growth Strategies
This study proposes a dynamic model that describes key characteristics of fermentative butanol production from glucose and xylose mixtures. The model has 12 parameters and incorporates noncompetitive inhibitory interaction between sugars as well as inhibitions due to high substrate and butanol conce...
