Table 1 Mean [±S.D] growth parameters for Turbo yeast and MYA-796 grown on enzyme-pretreated grass juice (GJ + t fosEp)

From: Co-production of bioethanol and probiotic yeast biomass from agricultural feedstock: application of the rural biorefinery concept

  Growth parameters Maximum product yield
  ΔOD600 Lag (h) T½Max (h) Max DT (h) Bioethanol (mg mL−1) Biomass (g L−1)
Turbo 1.70 [0.02] 11.25 [0.5] 17.25 [0.5] 3.5 [0.5] 37.43 [1.99] 4.78 [0.10]
MYA-796 1.74 [0.02] 12.00 [0.5] 20.25 [0.5] 4.5 [0.5] 39.18 [2.42] 4.96 [0.15]
  1. ΔOD600 = maximum – minimum optical density reading (at 600 nm); Lag phase = length of time population remains at < 10% of maximum OD; T½Max = time taken to achieve half maximal population growth (maximum OD – minimum OD × 0.5); Max DT = maximum observed doubling time.
