  1. 1. Ethanol production from lignocellulose using high local cell density yeast cultures. Investigations of flocculating and encapsulated Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Author : Johan Westman; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; yeast; encapsulation; lignocellulose; ethanol; fermentation; flocculation; inhibitors; tolerance; xylose; co-utilisation; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning; Resource Recovery; Yeast;

    Abstract : Efforts are made to change from 1st to 2nd generation bioethanol production, using lignocellulosics as raw materials rather than using raw materials that alternatively can be used as food sources. An issue with lignocellulosics is that a harsh pretreatment step is required in the process of converting them into fermentable sugars. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microbial Production of Bio-Based Chemicals: A Biorefinery Perspective

    Author : Tarek Dishisha; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biorefinery; platform chemical; organic acid; propionic acid; 3-hydroxypropionic acid; 3-hydroxypropionaldehyde; methacrylic acid; 1; 3-propanediol; Propionibacterium acidipropionici; Lactobacillus reuteri; Gluconobacter oxydans; high cell density fermentation; biotransformation; product inhibition; cell recycle; immobilized cells; chemical catalysis; pdu operon;

    Abstract : A shift from fossil- to renewable biomass feedstock for the emerging bio-based economy requires the development and adoption of new sustainable technologies that are more suited for transformation of biomass components to chemicals, materials and energy. This thesis presents investigations on the development of processes based on industrial biotechnology as a key element for the production of chemicals from agro-/industrial by-products. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fermentation of Lignocellulosic Hydrolysates: Inhibition and Detoxification

    Author : Eva Palmqvist; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fermentation strategies; mechanisms; identification; inhibition; lignocellulosic hydrolysates; Ethanol; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; virology; virologi; mykologi; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; bacteriology; Microbiology;

    Abstract : The ethanol yield and productivity obtained during fermentation of lignocellulosic hydrolysates is decreased due to the presence of inhibiting compounds, such as weak acids, furans and phenolic compounds produced during hydrolysis. Evaluation of the effect of various biological, physical and chemical detoxification treatments by fermentation assays using Saccharomyces cerevisiae was used to characterise inhibitors. READ MORE

  4. 4. Production of Ectoines and Poly(3-Hydroxybutyrate): High Cell-Density Cultivation of Halomonas Boliviensis

    Author : Hector Guzmán; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; poly 3-hydroxybutyrate ; hydroxyectoine; ectoine; Halomonas boliviensis; compatible solutes; Fed-batch cultivation;

    Abstract : This thesis reports a study involving the use of Halomonas boliviensis, a moderate halophile, for production of biopolyester poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) and compatible solutes ectoine and hydroxyectoine through high cell-density cultivation comprising fed-batch cultures. PHB is a biodegradable plastic produced by bacteria as energy reserve and can potentially be used as a replacement of fossil based plastic. READ MORE

  5. 5. Bioprocess development for biochemical conversion of lignocellulose

    Author : Ruifei Wang; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lignocellulose; strain engineering; stress tolerance; kinetic modelling; high gravity; scale-up; biofuels; SSCF; process development; Saccharomyces cerevisiae;

    Abstract : Due to its low environmental impact and high maturity of the fuel ethanol market, lignocellulosic ethanol is a promising option for reducing the carbon footprint in the transport sector. The characteristics of lignocellulosic feedstocks, such as varied sugar composition, low sugar density, low solubility, recalcitrance to enzymatic degradation, and inhibitors formed during thermochemical pretreatment, have so far limited the production process, and costs for conversion of lignocellulosic materials to ethanol are still high.
