Favorable effect of very low initial KLa value on xylitol production from xylose by a self-isolated strain of Pichia guilliermondii
Xylitol production from xylose by a self-isolated furfural and 5-hydroxymethyl furfural assimilating Pichia guilliermondii was studied under oxygen limitation. An extremely low initial volumetric oxygen transfer coefficient (0.075 h− 1) was found most favorable to the xylitol production with yield of 0.61 g g− 1. Related enzymes activities were also investigated and discussed.
