Production of hydrocarbon starting materials by fermentation is an alternative to production from petroleum. Fermentation uses renewable resources and creates much less hazardous waste. TNO has been working to develop a process for the production and recovery of chemicals, in particular hydrocarbons, from a fermentation medium.
The present invention provides a process for the production of hydrocarbons, such as 4-hydroxybenzoic acid and benzaldehyde. Other examples of hydrocarbons that may be produced are catechols (e.g. 3-methylcatechol), benzylalcohol, cinnamic acid, as well as mixtures of these and other hydrocarbons.
Production and recovery of chemicals, in particular, hydrocarbons.
The invention provides a process for the production of hydrocarbon from a fermentation liquid comprising:
