Acetate production from lactate and glucose fermentation by Gluconobacter oxydans

The prodn. of acetate from the fermn. of lactate by Gluconobacter oxydans was studied. Batch expts. showed that glucose was the preferred substrate compared to lactate. A fed-batch culture was fed with a mixt. of glucose and lactate followed by periodic addn. of lactate. The max. productivity of acetate was 0.16 g/L-h, but this value decreased during fed-batch culture due to growth inhibition by acetate. [on SciFinder (R)]
