This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:The metabolic activities of selected yeast strains (Saccharomyces sp., Kluyveromyces sp.) related to the 2-phenylethanol production will be studied. Cultivation media composition as well as the process parameters will be optimized. To minimize the toxic effects of the product towards the culture the mechanism and characteristics of in-situ product extraction during the fermentation will be used and studied. The suitable organic phase will be selected and tested for in-situ extraction of the product. Continuous product separation system will be constructed and integrated into the system bioreactor - in-situ extraction - separation. Finally the intgrated process for 2-phenylethanol will be designed and optimized in lab and pilot-scale experiments. Optimal parameters of fed-batch and continuous processes will be proposed and described. Process data should be used for design of industrial scale process for production of 2-phenylethanol.
