dc.description.abstractThe effects of agitation and aeration rates on copolymer poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) [P(3HB-co-3HV)] production by Azohydromonas lata MTCC 2311 using cane molasses supplemented with propionic acid in a bioreactor were investigated. The experiments were conducted in a three-level factorial design by varying the impeller (150-500 rev min -1) and aeration (0.5-1.5 vvm) rates. Further, the data were fitted to mathematical models [quadratic polynomial equation and artificial neural network (ANN)] and process variables were optimized by genetic algorithm-coupled models. ANN and hybrid ANN-GA were found superior for modeling and optimization of process variables, respectively. The maximum copolymer concentration of 7.45 g l-1 with 21.50 mol% of 3HV was predicted at process variables: agitation speed, 287 rev min-1; and aeration rate, 0.85 vvm, which upon validation gave 7.20 g l-1 of P(3HB-co- 3HV) with 21 mol% of 3HV with the prediction error (%) of 3.38 and 2.32, respectively. Agitation speed established a relative high importance of 72.19% than of aeration rate (27.80%) for copolymer accumulation. The volumetric gas-liquid mass transfer coefficient (kLa) was strongly affected by agitation and aeration rates. The highest P(3HB-co-3HV) productivity of 0.163 g l-1 h-1 was achieved at 0.17 s-1 of kLa value. During the early phase of copolymer production process, 3HB monomers were accumulated, which were shifted to 3HV units (9-21%) during the cultivation period of 24-42 h. The enhancement of 7.5 and 34% were reported for P(3HB-co-3HV) production and 3HV content, respectively, by hybrid ANNGA paradigm, which revealed the significant utilization of cane molasses for improved copolymer production. © Society for Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology 2012.-
