Abstract

The conversion of renewable biomass to acetone and butanol (AB) by gas stripping method was analyzed. Fermentation gases such as CO 2 and H 2 were used to remove butanol from the reactor as AB was produced. In the gas stripping batch reactor, a sugar concentration of 60 gL -1 was used. It was observed that the recovery of butanol relieved butanol toxicity, improved reactor productivity and yield, and resulted in concentrated product stream for separation and purification.
