Economic evaluation of butanol production from molasses and raw cassava

Economic evaluation of butanol production from molasses and raw cassava

Microbial Utilization of Renewable Resources 7: 551-556

Molasses and cassava were compared as feedstocks for fermentation to butanol, acetone and ethanol on the basis of a total annual production of 45 kt solvents. Optimum conditions for molasses conversion by Clostridium butylicum NRRL B592 (30 degrees C, pH 6.2, 100 g/litre with glucose equivalent 36 g/litre) are assumed to give solvent yield 28.8%.
