Commentary on Optimizing Alternative Substrate for Simultaneous Production of Surfactin and 2,3-Butanediol by Bacillus subtilis LB5a
In this short commentary, we put a light on the white technology, in which different wastes can be used to compose an optimum culture medium for the simultaneous production of surfactin and 2,3-butanediol. In addition, we combined two types of 2,3-butanediol analysis: solid-phase microextraction and liquid-liquid extraction. The simultaneous production of biochemicals is one of the most interesting strategies which could lead to the commercial viability of production.
