Abstract

Continuous fermentation with cell recycle proved very effective in increasing the ethanol volumetric productivity of the thermophilic facultative anaerobe, Bacillus stearothermophilus strain LLD‐15, on sucrose at 70°C. When complete cell recycle was used, cell viability decreased after a few residence times and sucrose consumption was reduced. Operation using a constant bleed rate resulted in greater stability and higher ethanol volumetric productivities. A mathematical model based on maintenance energy requirements provided an adequate description of the system. © 1994 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
