Ethanol Production in Fermentation of Mixed Sugars Containing Xylose

NREL (Inventor)

Research output: Patent

Abstract

Xylose-utilizing Z. mobilis strains were found to have improved ethanol production when grown in medium containing mixed sugars including xylose if sorbitol or mannitol was included in the medium. The effect was seen in concentrations of mixed sugars where no growth lag period occurs, as well as in higher sugars concentrations.
