TYPES OF FERMENTATION Batch types fermentation Fed batch fermentation Continuous fermentation solid state fermentation


BATCH FERMENTATION Batch fermentation is a discontinuous process and the fermentor has to be cleaned after each process and a fresh batch started. It includes the following 5 steps: Medium added Fermentor sterilised Inoculum added Fermentation followed to completion Culture harvested

Characteristics of a batch fermentation system:

Characteristics of a batch fermentation system Simplest fermentor operation Sterilisation can be performed in the reactor All nutrients are added before inoculation Maximum levels of C and N are limited by inhibition of cell growth Biomass production limited by C/N load and production of toxic waste products


Advantages Used where end product required in more quantities at a given period of time. Useful where the shelf life of the end product is short. Useful specifically for the product produced only at the stationary phase.


CONTINUOUS FERMENTATION It is a continuous process where the nutrient is continuously added to the fermented at a fixed rate. The organisms are continuously maintained at logarithmic stage. the products are recovered continuously. The fomenters in this type are called “ flow through’’ fermentation.

Disadvantages of continuous fermentation:

Disadvantages of continuous fermentation Complete sterilization is difficult More prone to contamination


FEDBATCH FERMENTATION This fermentation is intermediate of both batch and continuous fermentation. Sterile nutrients are added in increments .

Characters of fed batch fermentation:

Characters of fed batch fermentation Initial medium concentration is relatively low. Medium constituents are added continuously or in increments. Controlled feed results in higher biomass and product yields. Fermentation is still limited by accumulation of toxic end products. Finally the products are harvested in one stroke.


SOLID STATE FERMENTATION The growth of microorganisms on moist solid substrate particles in the absence or mere absence of visible liquid water between the particles. The moisture content of solid substrate ranges between 12-80%. The water content of a typical submentation is more than 95%.

PowerPoint Presentation:

SSF’s are usually used for the fermentation of agricultural products or foods, such as rice, wheat, barley, corn and soybeans. Some food fermentations involving SSF: Wheat by Aspergillus Soybean by Rhizopus Soybean by Aspergillus

Phases of solid state fermentation:

Phases of solid state fermentation The are 3 phases: Solid phase Liquid phase Gaseous phase Solid phase of there are two type: Natural solid materials An inert solid support

Characteristics of solid state fermentation:

Characteristics of solid state fermentation 1) The substrate may require preparation or pretreatment like, Chopping or grinding-reduce particle size Cooking or chemical hydrolysis Pasteurization or sterilization-reduce contaminants 2)Microorganism is usually a filamentous fungus requiring aerobic condition. 3)The Inoculum is mixed into substrate to fermentation.

Advantage of SSF:

Advantage of SSF A lower chance of contamination due to low moisture levels Ease of product separation Energy efficiencey Development of fully differentiated structures

Disadvantage :

Disadvantage Heterogeneous nature of the media,due to poor mixing characteristics. At high agitation speeds,mycelial cells may be damage. Rotary-tray or rotating-drum fermenters are often used.
