Microbial Biofilm in the industry
Biofilms represent negative and positive attributes in the industries. Biofilm is a functional consortium of microorganisms attached to either biotic or abiotic surfaces and embedded under the extracellular polymeric ...
Fermentation of rice bran hydrolysate to ethanol using Zymomonas mobilis biofilm immobilization on DEAE-cellulose
Background: The major challenges associated with the fermentation of lignocellulosic hydrolysates are the reduction in the operating cost and minimizing the complexity of the process. Zymomonas mobilis biofilm has been ...
Development of corn silk as a biocarrier for Zymomonas mobilis biofilms in ethanol production from rice straw
Z. mobilis cell immobilization has been proposed as an effective means of improving ethanol production. In this work, polystyrene and corn silk were used as biofilm developmental matrices for Z. mobilis ethanol production ...
Biofilm production by Zymomonas mobilis enhances ethanol production and tolerance to toxic inhibitors from rice bran hydrolysate
Microorganisms play a significant role in bioethanol production from lignocellulosic material. A challenging problem in bioconversion of rice bran is the presence of toxic inhibitors in lignocellulosic acid hydrolysate. ...
Zymomonas mobilis biofilm formation on different types of carriers
Zymomonas mobilis biofilm have been proposed to enhance the bioethanol production from agricultural derived materials. Z. mobilis biofilm reactor has been prospected to be used for a large scale bioethanol production. The ...
