Table 3 Fitting parameters of astaxanthin production to Eq. (2) in non-saccharified (MS) and partially-saccharified mussel waste (PSM and PSMS)

From: Mussel processing wastewater: a low-cost substrate for the production of astaxanthin by Xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous

Media A m (mg/L) v m (mg/L h) λ a (h) Y A/X (mg/g) Y A/TS (mg/g) Y X/TS (g/g)
MS 4.18 (NS) 0.126 (NS) 21.77 (NS) 0.320 0.122 0.381
PSM 26.00 ± 1.98 0.345 ± 0.082 38.98 ± 9.09 2.256 0.558 0.115

  1. Yields of X. dendrorhous ATCC 74219 cultivation in MS, PSM and PSMS are also shown
  2. Y A/X yield of astaxanthin production on biomass, Y A/TS yield of astaxanthin production on sugars consumed, Y X/TS yield of biomass on sugars consumed, NS non significant
