Microorganisms in Biorefineries by Birgit Kamm

By Birgit Kamm

The publication describes how plant biomass can be utilized as renewable feedstock for generating and additional processing a variety of items. specific cognizance is given to microbial tactics either for the digestion of biomass and the synthesis of platform chemical substances, biofuels and secondary products.

Topics lined contain: new metabolic pathways of microbes dwelling on eco-friendly vegetation and in silage; utilizing lignocellulosic hydrolysates for the creation of polyhydroxyalkanoates; fungi akin to Penicillium as host for the construction of heterologous proteins and enzymes; bioconversion of sugar hydrolysates into lipids; construction of succinic acid, lactones, lactic acid and natural lactates utilizing varied micro organism species; cellulose hydrolyzing micro organism within the construction of biogas from plant biomass; and isoprenoid compounds in engineered microbes.

Pre-ensiled crop is an excellent start material for the production of lysine (see chapter Microorganisms for Biorefining of Green Biomass). Besides lactic acid in silages, other organic acids can be found, larger quantities of acetic acid but also propionic acid, butyric acid, isobutyric acid and isovaleric Microbial Life on Green Biomass and Their Use for Production of Platform. . 29 Table 2 Identified MOs in silage are listed alphabetically Microorganism Products and impacts Absidia Acetobacter Acetobacter pasterianus Acinetobacter sp.
