Project title: OBTAINING PREBIOTIC PHYTOPROCESSED PRODUCTS AND BIOFUELS THROUGH THE COMPLEX PROCESSING OF SWEET SORGHUM

Project number: PN II62-068

Acronym: ZYSOPROD

Abstract:

The project aims to develop certain bioprocesses through the complex processing of Sweet Sorghum which will lead to obtaining of fine chemistry products. The interdisciplinary team of the project envisages the use of the complex methodologies (chemistry, biotechnology, biochemistry and molecular biology) required for the development of extraction and fermentation processes for the production of biofuels and phytoprocessed products whose value consists in their use in biomedicine, food industry and animal husbandry. The microorganism able to use in a complex manner the carbon source available is the Gram-negative bacteria Zymomonas mobilis.
