Lignin to lipid bioconversion by oleaginous Rhodococci

Author affiliations

Abstract

A metabolic route yielding lipids from lignin would represent innovative applications for this recalcitrant biomass component. In this study ethanol organosolv lignin (EOL) and ultrasonicated EOL (us-EOL) were utilized in Rhodococci bioconversions. Both lignins proved to be sufficient carbon sources, moreover, lipid formation was also observed, up to 4.08%.
