Description

Byproducts from modern, biotechnological fermentation processes are produced in large volume, up to, and exceeding several thousand tons per year at each industrial site. The byproducts may consist of the biomass from the microorganisms used in the fermentation, raw inputs contained in the fermentation broth, and major and minor products of fermentation. The primary source of energy for the microorganisms is corn, perhaps ten million bushels per year is converted to sugar for these industries. The byproducts may contain chemicals added to assist in the recovery of products, especially where ion exchange resins are used for this purpose. In addition, certain byproducts result from necessary ancillary processes such as peptide production by acidulation of soybean oilmeal and finally, treatment of process waste water.
