D2.10 Gas stripping removal of ethanol and Cell recycling of cell mass

Main Objectives

The main objective is optimization of a process developed by ENEA for production of hydrogen and ethanol from crude glycerol streams based on Mixed Microbial Culture (MMC) biotechnology. The current delivery investigates the possibility of increasing reaction rate by reducing ethanol level in the reactor by gas stripping and increasing cell concentration using recirculation of cell mass.

Main Outcomes

The delivery has been postponed until end of February 2017.
