Production and characterisation of a marine Halomonas surface-active exopolymer

Abstract

During screening for novel emulsifiers and surfactants, a marine gammaproteobacterium, Halomonas sp. MCTG39a, was isolated and selected for its production of an extracellular emulsifying agent, P39a. This polymer was produced by the new isolate during growth in a modified Zobell’s 2216 medium amended with 1% glucose, and […]

End of year 4 update

In the fourth year (Sep 18 to Aug 19),  BBEPP has been developing an efficient process for polymer production, From the 4 promising strains ( 2 biosurfactants & 2 bioemulsifiers), yield was an issue for 2 of the strains and this has meant that production at BBEPP has now been concentrated on 2 strains with […]

End of year 3 update

During the first 36 months, the MARISURF team has screened more than 500 marine bacteria strains for surfactant / emulsifying activity. The industrial end users have identified the desirable properties for the bio-surfactants & 79 have been identified with promising properties that could potentially  replace the current mainly petroleum-based, chemical products.  LEITAT & ULSTER have […]
