Table 3 Carbon recovery of fermentation products for engineered strains grown on crude glycerol

From: Metabolic engineering of Escherichia coli for production of n-butanol from crude glycerol

Strain Succinate Ethanol Lactate Acetate Butyrate Butanol Total (%)
BuT-8 5.0 9.9 2.3 4.6 10.4 27.3 59.5
BuT-16 0.8 4.2 0.6 2.2 4.5 57.7 70.0
  1. Carbon recovery was calculated as the molar percent of carbon in products per carbon in consumed glycerol. The data for strain BuT-8 were taken at 72 h of fermentation
