Table 3 Kinetic parameters of ethanol and arabitol production at an initial substrate concentration of 150 g/L

From: Production of ethanol and arabitol by Debaryomyces nepalensis: influence of process parameters

K La (h -1) Fermentation time (h) Substrate consumed (g/L) Ethanol (g/L) Arabitol (g/L) Y P/S(g/g) Q P(g/L/h)*
