Abstract

In the Satake Centre for Grain Process Engineering, cereal-based biorefining strategies are developed for the production of biofuels, biodegradable plastics, and platform chemicals. The use of various microbial feedstocks produced from wheat via the proposed biorefinery for the production of polyhydroxybutyrate and succinic acid was studied. Higher FAN concentration would increase microbial growth leading to enhanced PHB production. A. succinogenes grew well in the wheat-derived complex medium and around 17.1 g/L succinic acid was produced in 66 hr. This experiment demonstrated that the wheat-derived feedstock contain essential nutrients for A. succinogenes growth and succinic acid production. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2006 AIChE Annual Meeting (San Francisco, CA 11/12-17/2006).
