Researchers show mixotrophic fermentation process improves carbon conversion, boosting yields and reducing CO2

The production costs for most chemicals via microbial fermentation are currently high compared to oil-derived products primarily because of operating costs associated with feedstock and feedstock processing. Consequently, first and second generation bioproduct manufacturing processes are economically challenged, particularly in light of recent low oil prices. One way to mitigate high feedstock cost is to maximize conversion into the bioproduct of interest.
