[CEST2019_00607] Lipid production by Rhodosporidium toruloides growing on media presenting composition similarities with the spent sulfite liquor in batch and fed-batch cultures

Session: 26, Room:
Aim of this study is to explore the effect of sodium lignosulfonate (SL), a paper industry by-product, on cell growth and lipid production by the yeast Rhodosporidium toruloides, cultivated on xylose-based media, that mimic the principal waste-stream originated from paper production facilities (viz. the spent-sulfite liquor). Yeast lipids present increasing interest as alternative non-food feedstocks for biodiesel production. Strains DSM 4444 and NRRL Y-27012 were shake-flask cultured under nitrogen-limiting conditions using xylose at 50 g/L, and SL was added at varying concentrations.
