Reciprocal maximal yield of biomass on Gibbs energy, 1/Fgx, (kJ/C-mol X); (a) Heterotrophic growth (triangles, aerobic; squares, fermentation, X's denitrifying systems); C is the number of carbon atoms in the carbon source; y is the degree of reduction of the carbon source. (b) Autotrophic growth (squares, electron donors where reversed electron transport [RET] is needed; circles, donors without RET). The lines represent equations 3a and 3b.
