Bacterial Production of PHAs from Lipid-Rich by-Products


(8 صفحه - از 45 تا 52)


Background and Objective: Due to oil shortage and environmental problems, synthetic plastics will surely be replaced by alternative, biodegradable materials. A possible good example could be polyhydroxyalkanoates, and the inexpensive agricultural fatty by-products could be usefully converted to polyhydroxyalkanoates by properly selected and/or developed microbes. Material and Methods: Among the more common by-products available, a variety of lipid-rich residues have been explored as substrate, such as crude glycerol from biodiesel, biodiesel obtained from fatty residues, and, from slaughterhouse, bacon rind, udder and tallow. In this paper, several new isolates and collection PHA-producing microbes have been screened for both lipolytic activities and polyhydroxyalkanoates production. The soil proved to be the most promising mining place to find new interesting microbial species, even better than more specific and selective environments such as slaughterhouses. Results and Conclusion: Remarkably, two of the collection strains used here, known to be polyhydroxyalkanoates producers, resulted as really promising, being able to grow directly on all the substrates tested and to produce variable amounts of the polymer, including the co-polymers P (3HB-co-3HV). Conflict of interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.
