Figure 8

Ethanol production in cocultures of yeast and bacteria incubated in lignocellulosic medium with and without addition of ethanol and NaCl. Lignocellulosic dilute acid spruce hydrolysate medium without or with additions of 40 g/l of ethanol and 25 g/l of NaCl or 20 g/l of ethanol and 50 g/l of NaCl was inoculated with a mixture of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and the bacteria Lactobacillus buchneri, Lactobacillus plantarum, Acetobacter syzygii and Acetobacter tropicalis. The ethanol concentration was measured after glucose exhaustion. Values represent data from two separate bioreactor cultures each and error bars indicate minimum/maximum values.
