However, an industrial implementation of this process requires further optimizations that allow for one to increase the amount of cells immobilized on the carriers, as well as improvements in the operational se of the process.

Figure 2 shows the material upon completion of the process of conditioning. Get cutting-edge science videos from J o VE sent straight to your inbox every month. Results and discussion Due to heterogeneity in nature and origin of agro-industrial waste used in the experiment, and to avoid interference in the subsequent process of cell immobilization, it was llecho to establish a cleaning treatment and adapting materials.

In this study we developed a protocol for quantification of immobilized biomass on lignocellulosic carriers and we obtained reproducible results. The main mechanisms that occur during immobilization by adsorption are: Ethanol production began in the early hours of fermentation, but only provided an exponential accumulation by 6 hours after the process started. Journal of Dairy Science. As observed in Fig. One of the more relevant biofuels for the substitution of fossil fuels is ethanol [1], which is mainly produced by alcoholic fermentation in batch processes.

This Acid was analyzed and identified by Spectroscope method called Ultra Violet Visible corroborating its existence. In recent years, raw materials derived from agro-industrial waste and their application as promising carriers for the immobilization of cells have been evaluated.

Immobilization matrices Used as immobilization matrices were lignocellulosic materials, sugar cane bagasse, corn leaves, corn cobs and wood shavings, obtained as agro-industrial waste. Many possibilities of optimization have been suggested for obtaining this biofuel, and one of them has to do with the usage of more efficient production technologies. Calcular la densidad de la biomasa dentro de la muestra concentrada.


The method of detection was rate refraction, and the retention time was The choice of the carrier sizes and flow rates for immobilization in fermentation conditions within the studied ranges can be made by considering the best operating conditions.

Critical Reviews in Biotechnology. As biorreactpr, the values biotreactor in the two reactors for treatment using water and isotonic solutions are not suitable for immobilized biomass determination.

It is important to mention that continuous research is required, in order to optimize the amount of immobilized biomass on the support and the amount of biocatalyst packed in the reactor, and to obtain the appropriate inoculum size to achieve higher productivity in the fermentation.

Encienda la placa mezcladora a velocidad muy baja; un valor de 1 o 2 es apropiado para comenzar. Analytic methods The total sugar quantification was performed by the DNS Dinitrosalicylic acid colorimetric method. The parameters obtained in the batch process are shown in Table 1.

Yeast immobilization in lignocellulosic wastes for ethanol production in packed bed bioreactor

Differences on the surface of the structures of the four materials can be found, these differences can lead to changes in yeast cell immobilization. Table 2presents the results in this standardization, when we used the biomass quantification protocol proposal. These values are significant if compared with the data reported by others researchers, who are using different lignocellulosic materials as carriers and obtained 0.

The productivities reached in fermentations with cells immobilized on corn leaves, corn cob, and wood shaving birreactor similar to each other. Continuous processes that use immobilized cells show great advantages over those using free empaado, since they facilitate the separation of the product, allow re-use of the biocatalyst, they have a high volumetric productivity, and facilitate the control of process variables as well as reducing the risk of contamination [5].


This amount of immobilized biomass is significant compared to the values biorreactpr by other authors. In this way, the sugars provided in the reactor input could be fully consumed, increasing the yield and the productivity even more.

The concentration of biomass was determined by optic density at nm using a curve of dry weight. After drying, they were weighed again. There is a great potential of lignocellulosic materials wood shavings, bagasse, corn leaves and corn cobfor use as carriers in the immobilization on an industrial scale, because the immobilization is easy, agro-industrial waste materials are found in large amounts and the quantity of immobilized biomass obtained is significant compared with the data reported by other authors.

Used as mixing vessel MV. Since the packed bed bioreactor system has great operational stability and the results of fermentation with a volumetric productivity of 1. Additionally, we have obtained better yields than continuous alcoholic fermentations performed with free cells and fermentations performed with cells immobilized on other materials.

Immobilization yeasts cells, bioethanol, biofuels, lignocellulosic carriers, continuous fermentation. Received for review November 23 th, accepted May 16 th, final version May, 31 th Two different types of bioreactors were designed, using principles of similarity.

This study is focused on the development of an immobilization process of yeast cells in waste lignocellulosic materials and their evaluation in the ethanol production by using packed bed bioreactors. Blanks were evaluated using cell-free material.
