Ethanol Production Using Xylitol Synthesis Mutant of Xylose-Utilizing Zymomonas

NREL (Inventor)

Research output: Patent

Abstract

Production of ethanol using a strain of xylose-utilizing Zymomonas with a genetic modification of the glucose-fructose oxidoreductase gene was found to be improved due to greatly reduced production of xylitol, a detrimental by-product of xylose metabolism synthesized during fermentation.
