Abstract

Syngas fermentation provides a promising and unique route to produce biofuels from the syngas that can be produced from various resources via different technologies. In this chapter, biological conversion of syngas is introduced and reviewed in terms of fermentation mechanism, factors that influence the process including media composition, reactor type, and method of product recovery. In addition, a review of current pilot- and commercial-scale processes of syngas fermentations is included. Combination of biomass gasification and syngas fermentation has been commercially deployed to ...
