Abstract:

The crude glycerol has been converted to 1, 3-propanediol which is not only a useful final product but also a valuable starting compound for producing polymers, A newly isolated Enterobacter cloacae GNTEW13-1 and GNTEW13-V has shown a high produciblility of 1, 3-propanediol by using biofuel derived crude glycerol as a sole carbon and energy source. In the preliminary stage the Enterobacter cloacae GNTEW13-1 and GNTEW13-V has grown on the glycerol based medium to enhance the more utilization of glycerol for the high production 1, 3-propanediol. Total 10 mutants were screened after UV Treatment and among these mutants, 3 mutants showed increased production over parent strains.


Keywords: Crude Glycerol,1, 3-propanediol, Enterobacter cloacae, Mutagenesis.
