The ABE experiments were first performed to investigate the ability of C. acetobutylicum YM1 to grow and produce butanol from the main sugars that could be recovered from the hydrolysis of PKC. Conversion of acetone into isopropanol was successfully achieved by the expression of the adhB-593 gene; acetone and isopropanol were produced at 0.1 and 3.1 g/liter. The profile of ABE fermentation of mixed sugar (glucose and mannose) as the carbon source by C. acetobutylicum YM1: (a) solvents and OD; (b) sugar, pH, and acids concentration. A., and Hassan, M. A. 2013). The authors wish to express their gratitude to the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia for financing this research work through grants DPP-2015-023 and GUP-2016-06. Here, we sought an alternative and simpler approach, namely, adding the conversion step from acetone to isopropanol, which can be used as a fuel additive, into C. acetobutylicum. Until the end of the last century, the ABE fermentation from grain was operated in a few industrial scale plants. DOI: 10.1016/j.renene.2015.08.051, Cerveró, J. M., Skovgaard, P. A., Felby, C., Sørensen, H. R., and Jørgensen, H. (2010). (B) Compositions of solvents produced by C. acetobutylicum PJC4BK and PJC4BK(pIPA3-Cm2). For comparison, the PKC was also pretreated with hydrochloric acid (HCl) by the addition of 100 g of PKC to 1 L of 1% and 2% HCl (v/v) solutions and was heated (121 °C and 45 min) to generate hydrochloric acid-pretreated PKC (HAPKC) sample. An attempt was made to use alkali-pretreated rice straw for butanol production. Among different pretreatment methods, acid and alkali treatments are the most promising approaches that could enhance sugar recovery (Kumar et al. 2011; Kumar and Gayen 2011; Nigam and Singh 2011). 97(6), 1460-1469. Cell growth was monitored by measuring the OD600 using an Ultrospec 3100 Pro spectrophotometer (Amersham Biosciences, Uppsala, Sweden). This reduced ferredoxin can be used for the production of either NADH, NADPH, or molecular hydrogen according to its cellular state (31). (A) Time course of growth, concentration of glucose, total alcohol production, and acetone production during the fermentations of C. acetobutylicum PJC4BK and PJC4BK(pIPA3-Cm2) performed at pHs of ≥5.0. Cooverexpression of the act operon and the adhB-593 gene in the WT 824 strain showed results different from those of the flask cultivation. In the present study, all adhB-593-expressing clostridial strains efficiently converted acetone into isopropanol and only trace amounts of acetone remained in the culture broth (Table 3 and Fig. The alkali pretreatment of PKC was performed using sodium hydroxide 1% (w/v) and alkaline peroxide separately to generate sodium hydroxide-pretreated PKC (SHPKC 1%) and hydrogen peroxide-pretreated PKC (HPPKC) samples, respectively. The PKC was also pretreated with hydrogen peroxide as described by (Qureshi et al. 1999; Noparat et al. The results obtained from the fermentations of glucose and mannose showed that C. acetobutylicum YM1 could utilize the main sugars in PKC (mannose and glucose) efficiently for the production of butanol. Effects of overexpressing a synthetic acetone operon on IBE production.Overexpression of three key genes of the acetone pathway, adc, ctfA, and ctfB, has been shown to increase total solvent production as well as butanol production (24). Gas-stripping fermentation of the PJC4BK(pIPA3-Cm2) strain. Technol. The working volume of the reactor was maintained at 2 liters by adding sterilized distilled water to compensate for the loss of water due to the gas stripping. In this study, PKC was pretreated with a 1% NaOH (1% SHPKC) solution. 1984; Fond et al. (2016a). Flask cultures showed that the overexpression of the adc and ctfAB genes enhances total alcohol production by increasing the assimilation of organic acids (Table 3). Fermentations of each strain were conducted in duplicate using independently grown cultures, and average values are presented. The fermentation of mannose resulted in a productivity and yield of 0.02 g/L.h and 0.07 g/L.h, respectively. 2013). 6(8), 529-534. Palm kernel cake (PKC) is an abundant biomass generated from the palm oil processing industry that can be used as the carbon source for the growth and production of acetone-butanol-ethanol fermentation (ABE) by Clostridia. With in situ gas stripping, the PJC4BK(pIPA3-Cm2) strain completely consumed 132.9 g/liter of glucose, producing 35.6 g/liter of the IBE mixture (Fig. Originally, the desired product of the fermentation was acetone for the production of cordite1 Initially, acetone was needed in the production of synthetic rubber. Fed-batch fermentation with gas stripping. IBE production in a buk-inactivated strain.Although 824(pIPA3) resulted in increased total alcohol production, butanol production declined.

All rights reserved. 824(pIPA3) showed higher CoAT activities both in the acidogenic and in the solventogenic phase than WT 824. The pretreatment of lignocellulosic materials could constitute approximately 40% of the total biofuel production costs (Sindhu et al. The cell growth of C. acetobutylicum YM1 was detected at 600 nm using a UV-vis spectrophotometer (Genesys 10, Thermo Spectronic, USA). This indicated that mannose could be used as an important sugar derived from hemicellulose for an efficient ABE fermentation. 2820 Faucette Dr., Campus Box 8001Raleigh, NC 27695. Hydrolysate Obtained from the Acid Pretreated PKC and the Subsequent ABE Fermentation of the Hydrolysate by C. acetobutylicum YM1. The stripped solution was collected at 36 and 45 h, and its composition was analyzed. 5). DOI: 10.1016/j.fuel.2015.05.073, Al-Shorgani, N. K. N., Isa, M. H. M., Yusoff, W. M. W., Kalil, M. S., and Hamid, A. (2013). To date, however, this experiment has not been conducted using metabolically engineered clostridial strains. Before inoculation, the medium was flushed with oxygen-free nitrogen to make anaerobic conditions. One canonical example of such processes is acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation by Clostridium acetobutylicum, during which cells convert carbon sources to organic acids that are later reassimilated to produce solvents as a strategy for cellular survival. Table 2. Fig. It was reported that less than 10 g/L of glucose was unable to shift the metabolites from acid to solvent production in ABE fermentation by solveno-genic clostridial strains (Long et al. 2B). (2008) also revealed that alkaline peroxide pretreatment of wheat straw produced a high concentration of sugars, while the growth of C. beijerinckii P260 was inhibited during ABE fermentation, likely because the alkaline pretreatment resulted in the production of a toxic substances that inhibited the growth of the strain. 2013). To study the efficiency of the nutrients present in SAPKC for ABE fermentation compared with the TYA medium, the SAPKC was fermented to ABE with and without the TYA medium using C. acetobutylicum YM1. DOI: 10.15376/biores.8.1.1420-1430, Al-Shorgani, N. K. N., Kalil, M. S., Yusoff, W. M. W., and Hamid, A. 3. 135, 262-268. The results obtained from hydrochloric acid-pretreated PKC (HAPKC) showed that acid hydrolysis of PKC by 1% HCl recovered 5.69 g/L of total sugar (Table 3). Performance of butanol fermentation process using solventogenic clostridia is severely limited by: a) The ABE production from glucose was similar to that produced from EHPKC and 1% SAPKC. According to Survase et al. DOI: 10.1016/j.egypro.2015.11.588, Ong, L. G. A., Abd-Aziz, S., Noraini, S., Karim, M. I. The viability of most fermentation processes is very much dependent on the cheap fermentation medium used. This performance of PJC4BK(pIPA3-Cm2) exceeds that of natural IBE producers.

(2016). In this study, ABE production from the fermentation of PKC using Clostridium acetobutylicum YM1 in a batch culture was conducted. DOI: 10.1002/bit.21373, Fond, O., Matta-Ammouri, G., Petitdemange, H., and Engasser, J. M. (1985). In this study, ABE production from the fermentation of PKC using Clostridium acetobutylicum YM1 in a batch culture was conducted. AADC activity was determined as described previously (8), and 1 unit of AADC activity was expressed by production of 1 μl of CO2 per min. 2003), corn stove and barley straw (Qureshi et al. (2015). The dotted arrow indicates the starting point of gas stripping, while the solid arrows indicate the sampling points of stripped solution. “Challenges in biobutanol production: How to improve the efficiency?,” Renew. Residual concentrations of acetic and butyric acids were 1.3 and 0.6 g/liter, respectively. Coproduction of acetone thus causes lower yield of fuel alcohols. Energ. Al-Shorgani, N. K. N., Kalil, M. S., and Yusoff, W. M. W. (2011). During 72 h of fermentation, both cultures produced the highest butanol within 48 h, the glucose culture produced 1 g/L ABE, while the mannose culture produced 0.87 g/L ABE. “Isolation of a Clostridium acetobutylicum strain and characterization of its fermentation performance on agricultural wastes,” Renewable Energy 86(2016), 459-465. Unlike many bacteria that use the oxidative pentose phosphate (PP) pathway, C. acetobutylicum does not have the oxidative PP pathway (2, 5). Whenever the glucose concentration in the fermentation broth became less than 10 g/liter, 100 ml of a 500-g/liter glucose solution was added to the reactor. The PKC was provided by the Malaysia palm oil board (MPOB). The PKC was first ground and passed through a sieve with a 500-µm mesh to obtain fine particles. Also, the complete consumption of glucose in our gas-stripping fermentation without strain degeneration suggests that the engineered strain developed here can be used for long-term fermentation. 2010). This plasmid was introduced into wild-type C. acetobutylicum ATCC 824 (WT 824) after methylation, which prevents the digestion by an endogenous restriction endonuclease, Cac824I (23). Acetone was successfully converted to isopropanol by the expression of the adhB-593 gene in PJC4BK(pIPA3-Cm2) (Fig. 32(12), 1353-1358. (2004). 118(1), 73-79. In the past decades, renewable lignocellulosic feedstocks have provided economic and sustainable options for cost-effective butanol production through microbial acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation by Clostridium acetobutylicum [ 1, 2 ]. 3). “Acetone-butanol fermentation revisited,” Microbiol. 4A) (132.9 g/liter). 2010; Jørgensen et al.

The residual concentrations of acetic and butyric acids were 2.4 and 2.9 g/liter, respectively, which were higher than those observed with 824(pACT). The reduction of reducing sugar production at a higher enzyme loading could have been due to the saturation of the substrate surface with the enzyme (Xu et al. Energ. During ABE fermentation processes, Clostridium acetobutylicum can utilize the sugar (carbohydrate source) in the medium and convert it to acetone, ethanol, and butanol. Sweet sorghum bagasse as an immobilized carrier for ABE fermentation by using Clostridium acetobutylicum ABE 1201. Biotechnol. Enzymatic hydrolysis was performed in 250-mL Duran bottles with 10% dry matter of PKC in a 0.2 mM sodium acetate buffer (pH 4.5). DOI: 10.1016/j.rser.2010.11.008, Gheshlaghi, R., Scharer, J. M., Moo-Young, M., and Chou, C. P. (2009). Thank you for sharing this Applied and Environmental Microbiology article. Technol. The acetone titer was less than 0.1 g/liter. It was then subjected to the different pretreatment methods, including acid pretreatment (sulphuric and hydrochloric acids), alkali pretreatment (sodium hydroxide and alkaline peroxide), enzymatic hydrolysis, and hydrothermal pretreatment to generate various samples labeled as SAPKC, HAPKC, SHPKC, HPPKC, EHPKC, and HPKC, respectively. The pretreatment of de-oiled jatropha waste by acids also revealed that there was a positive relationship between the quantity of sugars released and the concentration of acids used for pretreatment (HCl (0.5% to 10%) and H2SO4 (0.5% to 5%)), so that the total sugar generated ranged from 1.4 g/L to 1.7 g/L and 1.4 g/L to 7.8 g/L using HCl and H2SO4, respectively (Kumar et al. Thus, this study aimed at developing an improved Clostridium acetobutylicum strain possessing enhanced fuel alcohol production capability. The effect of enzyme loadings on total reducing sugar content. Fig. Palm kernel cake (PKC) is known as a lignocellulosic residue that is obtained after the extraction of the oil from palm kernels. Abstract. This means that there is a product concentration threshold that cannot be overcome, resulting in a product stream highly diluted in water. When the concentration of H2SO4 was increased up to 3%, the amount of the total reducing sugar recovery decreased to 21.9 g/L, including 3.12 g/L glucose and 18.78 g/L mannose. This study also revealed that PKC can be regarded as a potentially low cost substrate for ABE fermentation. The acetone–butanol–ethanol (ABE) fermentation was one of the largest biotechnological operations ever performed, being beaten in size only by the ethanolic fermentation. The IBE yield was 0.27 g/g glucose, which is slightly lower than that obtained with the batch fermentation. “Removal of fermentation inhibitors from alkaline peroxide pretreated and enzymatically hydrolyzed wheat straw: Production of butanol from hydrolysate using Clostridium beijerinckii in batch reactors,” Biomass Bioenerg. A., Yusoff, W. M. W., and Kalil, M. S. (2013). The profile of ABE fermentations of glucose as the carbon source by C. acetobutylicum YM1: (a) solvents and OD; (b) sugar, pH, and acids concentration, Fig. This is due to the fact that the lower butanol concentration in the broth positively affected cell growth. 2 and 3). The metabolic activity of C. acetobutylicum greatly decreases with the age of culture (28), due to metabolite inhibition (1) and/or sporulation. The amounts of acetone relative to the amounts of total solvents in stripped solutions 1 and 2 were 0.01 and 0.02 g/g total solvents, respectively (Fig. The production of PKC in Malaysia has increased in recent years so that 2,520,000 tons of PKC were produced during 2015 (MBOP 2016). 4. Acetone butanol ethanol (ABE) were produced in an integrated fermentation-product recovery system using Clostridium acetobutylicum (C. acetobutylicum) and a silicalite-silicone composite membrane.

Jonsson, L. J., Palmqvist, E., Nilvebrant, N. O., and Hahn-Hagerdal, B. Table 4. The acid hydrolysis experiments revealed that 2% SAPKC produced the highest reducing sugar concentrations with a value as high as 30 g/L that contained 3.78 g/L glucose and 26.22 g/L mannose, while the PKC pretreatment with 1% H2SO4 generated 9.97 g/L total sugar that contained 1.06 g/L glucose and 8.91 g/L mannose. (16) reported the production of 13.6 g/liter of isopropanol with ca. It has been reported that CoAT might be a rate-limiting enzyme for acetone production (10, 41). The hot steam pretreatment did not considerably improve the sugar generation from PKC, and the same concentrations of butanol and ABE were obtained from the hot steam pretreated- and untreated- PKC samples (Table 2). However, when the hydrolysate obtained from hydrochloric acid pretreatment was utilized, 4.93 g/L and 5.96 g/L of butanol and ABE were obtained, respectively. IBE production in pH-controlled batch fermentation. DOI: 10.3923/pjbs.2003, Kiyoshi, K., Furukawa, M., Seyama, T., Kadokura, T., Nakazato, A., and Nakayama, S. (2015). Clostridium acetobutylicum Clostridium acetobutylicum belongs to a group of Gram-positive and endospore forming anaerobes and is considered to be a model organism for solventogenic clostridia due to its acetone–butanol–ethanol (ABE) fermentation metabolism. In previous studies on the isopropanol production of E. coli, the conversion of acetone into isopropanol was incomplete. DOI: 10.1007/s12010-009-8814-6, Kalil, M. S., Kit, P. W., Yusoff, W. M. W., and Abdul Rahman, K. (2003). A tryptone-yeast extract-acetate (TYA) medium was used for the culture of C. acetobutylicum YM1. “Dilute acid pretreatment of oil palm trunk biomass at high temperature for enzymatic hydrolysis,” Energ. is a gram positive, spore forming, strictly anaerobic bacterium, capable of converting carbohydrates into acetone, butanol and ethanol in the ratio of 3:6:1 through a fermentation process [1]. Cl (pH 7.5), 1 mM dithiothreitol, 0.2 mM NADPH or NADH, and 6.7 mM acetone (14). In mixed sugar (glucose, xylose, galactose, and arabinose) fermentation, the culture preferred glucose and arabinose over galactose and xylose. 2008). Indeed, by coupling the gas stripping with fermentation, the amount of glucose consumption in PJC4BK(pIPA3-Cm2) was dramatically increased (Fig. Biotechnol 161(1-8), 318-332. The C. acetobutylicum YM1 was recently isolated from a Malaysian agricultural soil and found as a hyper-butanol producing strain (Al-Shorgani et al. (1999). C. acetobutylicum is a model organism for ABE fermentation. Despite the lower residual concentrations of acids, the maximum butanol titer obtained with 824(pACT) was 13.0 g/liter, which is 8% lower than that (14.2 g/liter) obtained with WT 824. The 824(pIPA3) strain produced 17.1 g/liter total alcohol, with a yield of 0.28 g/g glucose; individual amounts were 6.1, 10.2, and 0.8 g/liter of isopropanol, butanol, and ethanol, respectively (Fig. The titers of isopropanol, butanol, and ethanol were 4.4, 14.1, and 1.9 g/liter, respectively. DOI: 10.1016/j.biortech.2015.03.061, Komonkiat, I., and Cheirsilp, B. 31(2-3), 162-167. Background: In acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation by Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824 using corn-based substrate, the solvents are generally produced at a ratio of 3:6:1 (A:B:E, w/w). After transformation, the recombinant PJC4BK strain harboring pIPA3-Cm2 was cultured at 37°C in a bioreactor containing 2 liter CGM supplemented with 80 g/liter glucose, and pH was controlled at above 5.0. 2015, 2016). (2013). The viability of most fermentation processes is very much dependent on the cheap fermentation medium used. 49(6), 691-697. One unit of SADH activity was defined as 1 μmol of NADPH or NADH oxidized per min. “Enzyme production and profile by Aspergillus niger during solid substrate fermentation using palm kernel cake as substrate,” Appl. This medium was used to prepare the inoculum of C. acetobutylicum YM1. Thus, there have been attempts to disrupt or inactivate the acetone … About 100 mL of the TYA medium containing 30 g/L of these sugars was transferred into 250-mL Scott Duran bottles. DOI: 10.1016/j.enzmictec.2009.10.012, Chen, W. -H., Chen, Y. The similar performance of EHPKC and 1% SAPKC to that of the control culture may have been due to the low concentrations of microbial inhibitors produced during the low severity pretreatment. Eng. The failure of C. acetobutylicum YM1 to grow and produce butanol could have been attributed to the inhibition of clostridial cells by the phenolic compounds, which may have been produced from lignin degradation during the alkali pretreatment. Therefore, we then modified linen with polyetherimide (PEI) and steric acid (SA) to increase surface positive charge and improve surface property. Jørgensen, H., Kristensen, J. Time profiles of fermentations of C. acetobutylicum ATCC 824 (A), 824(pACT) (B), and 824(pIPA3) (C) performed at a pH of ≥5.0. The potential to produce butanol from enzymatic scarification of PKC was performed in this study, and the results are presented in (Fig. Table 3 shows that the highest ABE yield obtained was from 2% and 3% SAPKC with the same value of 0.24 g/g. Consequently, the concentration of total solvent was also slightly lower than that obtained with WT 824. “Pretreatment and hydrolysis methods for recovery of fermentable sugars from de-oiled Jatropha waste,” Bioresour. No growth was observed; subsequently, no ABE production occurred during the 72 h of ABE fermentation. “Butanol production from wood pulping hydrolysate in an integrated fermentation-gas stripping process,” Bioresource. Several studies to produce butanol in more friendly organisms, such as Escherichia coli, at a level comparable to that of native producers have been conducted recently, but C. acetobutylicum is still an attractive platform due to its versatility of carbon source utilization (18) and its higher productivity than that of E. coli. 4). In the case of 824(pIPA1), the amount of glucose utilized was slightly lower. 2007). Briefly, the 7-liter bioreactor containing 1.8 liters CGM was used in the fed-batch fermentation to control foam without adding antifoam agent. Similar studies have shown that cellulose constitutes about 11.6% of PKC polysaccharide, and the hemicellulose composition of PKC includes a large amount of mannan (57.8%) with a lower quantity of xylan (3.7%) (Ong et al. Sustain. The enzymatic treatment was performed at a temperature of 60 °C for 72 h reaction time under 200 rpm agitation to generate enzyme-treated PKC hydrolysate (EHPKC). 2014), rice bran, and de-oiled rice bran (Al-Shorgani et al. Butanol production is also a fermentation process – we’ll go over the differences in a little bit. The sugar concentrations were detected using a refractive index detector (RID, Agilent Technologies, Alto, CA, USA) at 60 °C and a flow rate of 0.5 mL/min using 10-4 M sodium hydroxide solution as the mobile phase. Expression of the secondary alcohol dehydrogenase of. Consistent with a previous report (24), 824(pACT) produced more acetone and butanol (Table 3) than the wild-type strain (32% and 8% more, respectively). “The generation of fermentation inhibitors during dilute acid hydrolysis of softwood,” Enzyme Microb. As expected, PJC4BK(pIPA3-Cm2) produced less butyric acid (1.1 versus 2.9 g/liter) but exhibited a higher peak concentration (6.0 versus 2.7 g/liter) and final concentration (3.9 versus 2.4 g/liter) of acetic acid than 824(pIPA3). In this view, Jonsson et al. The butanol productivity as well as the IBE productivity of our engineered strain exceeds that obtained using engineered E. coli. The production of butanol and other solvents by C. acetobutylicum NCIMB13357 in this study is shown in Figure 1(a) . (1998) observed that inhibition of fermentation was decreased by removing phenolic compounds from willow hydrolysate. In this study, an efficient acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation strategy integrating Clostridium acetobutylicum/Saccharomyces cerevisiaeco-culturing system with exogenous butyrate addition, was proposed and experimentally conducted. However, cost and efficiency are factors that limit the production of butanol by Clostridium acetobutylicum. DOI: 10.1016/j.biombioe.2006.06.015, Zhao, Y., Wang, Y., Zhu, J. Y., Ragauskas, A., and Deng, Y. Phase equilibrium diagram for 1-butanol - ethanol - water ternary mixture The major route for NADPH generation in C. acetobutylicum consists of pyruvate-ferredoxin oxidoreductase, which converts pyruvate into acetyl-CoA and carbon dioxide, producing reduced ferredoxin. (35) demonstrated that C. beijerinckii NRRL B-592 produced about 16 g/liter of total solvents, including isopropanol, from 80 g/liter of maize mash, but the efficiency of acetone conversion in this strain is not known; the NRRL B-592 strain did not produce isopropanol in another study (7). Chaim Weizmann was hired to work on the problem at Manchester University and fermentation became an attractive route in which to acquire the acetone necessary for the process. It was clear that the concentrations of the total organic acids drastically increased during 25 h of ABE fermentation, in which the clostridial cells were in the exponential growth phase. The complexity and systems nature of … A similar consumption of glucose (29.7 g/L) and mannose (28.6 g/L) was observed by the YM1 strain. The lowest ABE yield (0.09 g/g) was obtained when 1% HAPKC was utilized. A. The amount of dry PKC loaded was 10% (w/v). As can be seen in Fig. -G. (2013). Analytical procedure.The concentration of glucose was analyzed with a YSI 2700 Select biochemistry analyzer (YSI Life Sciences, OH). “Bioconversion of barley straw and corn stover to butanol (a biofuel) in integrated fermentation and simultaneous product recovery bioreactors,” Food Bioprod. Technol. 6(14), 1273-1275. B., and Felby, C. (2007). DOI: 10.1007/bf00253609, García, V., Päkkilä, J., Ojamo, H., Muurinen, E., and Keiski, R. L. (2011). 2. 218, 257-264. The concentrations of glucose consumed by the WT 824 and 824(pACT) strains were not significantly different at ∼69.2 to 69.6 g/liter. The concentrations of solvents and acids were determined by gas chromatography (model 7890; Agilent, CA) equipped with an 80/120 Carbopack B AW packed glass column (Supelco, PA) and a flame ionization detector (FID). “Enhanced enzymatic hydrolysis of spruce by alkaline pretreatment at low temperature,” Biotechnol. An integrated solvent (ABE) fermentation and product removal process was investigated. Biotechnol. The lower activities of CoAT, AADC, and SADH in PJC4BK(pIPA3-Cm2) than in 824(pIPA3) seem to be one of the reasons for lower isopropanol production in the former strain (Table 4). The experimental results showed that a low amount of total sugar was released (2.15 g/L) using 1% SHPKC. Since acetone cannot be used as a biofuel, its production needs to be minimized or suppressed by cell or bioreactor engineering. To study the growth of C. acetobutylicum YM1 in relation to the acidogenesis and solvenogenesis phases, three sets of ABE fermentations were performed in which C. acetobutylicum YM1 was grown in a TYA medium with glucose, mannose, and mixed sugars (glucose and mannose) at a ratio of 1:7. 2007), respectively. The stripped solvents were condensed using a Dimroth condenser (60 by 800 mm) at −5°C. This could have been attributed to the biphasic ABE process that occurred in clostridial cells, which includes two phases-the initial acidogenic phase followed by the solvenogenic phase (Gheshlaghi et al. Previous studies have reported that, during acid treatment, there are some byproducts produced as fermentation-inhibitor compounds. This study approved that PKC is a suitable substrate for ABE fermentation. (2007) reported that corn fibre treated with sulphuric acid inhibited butanol production by Clostridium beijerinckii BA101.
