Abstract

Clostridium beijerinckii NCIMB 8052 parent strain and BA101, a hypersolvent-producing mutant, fermented 6% (w/v) glucose, maltodextrin, maltose or xylose in a medium containing corn steep water (CSW) to produce butanol. Batch fermentation in an unoptimized 6% (w/v) maltodextrin plus 1.6% solids CSW medium demonstrated that C. beijerinckii NCIMB 8052 and BA101 produced 10.7 g butanol/L and 14.5 g butanol/L, respectively.
