Microbial biosurfactant research : time to improve the rigour in the reporting of synthesis, functional characterization and process development Universiteit Gent
The demand for microbially produced surface-active compounds for use in industrial processes and products is increasing. As such, there has been a comparable increase in the number of publications relating to the characterization of novel surface-active compounds: novel producers of already characterized surface-active compounds and production processes for the generation of these compounds. Leading researchers in the field have identified that ...
Toward green flotation : interaction of a sophorolipid biosurfactant with a copper sulfide Universiteit Gent
Bioconversion of food waste to produce industrial-scale sophorolipid syrup and crystals : dynamic Life Cycle Assessment (dLCA) of emerging biotechnologies Universiteit Gent
In situ product recovery of bio-based industrial platform chemicals : a guideline to solvent selection Universiteit Gent
In situ product recovery (ISPR), in the form of an extractive fermentation process, can increase productivity and product titers in the sustainable production of platform chemicals. To establish a guideline for the development of industrially relevant production processes for such bio-based compounds, a wide screening was performed, mapping the potential of an extensive range of solvents and solvent mixtures. Besides solvent biocompatibility ...
An interdisciplinary -omics study to boost continuous bolaform sophorolipid production Universiteit Gent
Sophorolipids : the natural functions unravelled Universiteit Gent
The yeast Starmerella bombicola distinguishes itself from other non-conventional yeasts by its potential of producing copious amounts of the secondary metabolites sophorolipids. Secondary metabolites are typically produced by microorganisms in the stationary phase and are not required for growth. They perform a plethora of specific natural functions such as inhibiting growth of competing organisms by the many antibiotics produced by e.g. ...
Sophorolipid production from food waste Universiteit Gent
Bringing microbial biosurfactants to the market: the AppliSurf project Universiteit Gent
The ICBS conference is organized within the framework of the closing meeting of the exciting AppliSurf project, screening the APPLIcation potential of a portfolio of novel types of glycolipid microbial biobased SURFactants of which the exciting results will be explained to you by the AppliSurf Project Manager(s).
