From: Saccharomyces cerevisiae exhibiting a modified route for uptake and catabolism of glycerol forms significant amounts of ethanol from this carbon source considered as ‘non-fermentable’

Effect of increased culture volumes (limited oxygen availability) on ethanol formation in the S. cerevisiae strains CBS DHA and CBS DHA FPS1. Experiments were conducted with 50 mL, 75 mL, 100 mL, 125 mL and 200 mL filling volume in 500-mL Erlenmeyer shake flasks in synthetic medium  where glycerol (6% v/v) was used as sole carbon source (SMGbuff). Mean values and standard deviations from three independent experiments are shown
