Discussion summary

The comment was made that high conversion rates are readily obtained on low concentrations of substrate.

What would be the effect of high substrate concentrations? Srinivasan's reply was that the arheology of concentrated substrates makes them difficult to handle in continuous fermentation systems. He felt that batch fermentations, though not subject to this limitation, have other disadvantages that reduce their attractiveness in the processing of cellulosic residues.
