Aceticus n. sp., has certain characteristics that make it especially suitable for a commercial process. It grows rapidly, produces large amounts of acid, and is able to compete successfully with other organisms. Some idea of the possible value of corn cobs may be gathered from the fact that there are produced in the U. S. alone more than 20,000,000 tons of corn cobs annually. A small amount of this material is used in the various stock feeds, but in general the cobs are discarded or used as...

Organic Acid Production

Lactic acid is used to a slight extent in many industries of which the tanning industry is perhaps the largest. It is used for neutralizing the lime left in the hides, after liming. The sources of lactic acid are skimmed milk, and the carbonaceous part of grains. The reaction from hydrolyzed starch to lactic acid is CgHiaOj 2CjH*OHCOaH. Lactic acid bacteria producing high percentages, acid, are used in fermenting skimmed milk or hydrolyzed starches. A carbonate, either calcium carbonate or zinc...

The soy beans, having been cooked and mixed with prepared wheat, are inoculated with the shoyu mold or ferment. This mold is procured commercially in Japan under the...

Fibre Retting Bacteria

Epidermis test of flax fibers when retting is nearly complete. The fibers are well separated and of fine diameter. Pieces of outicle c are clinging in spots. When this stage of retting is reached It is necessary to Bwish the fibers to and fro in water in order to tell whether the epidermis is well loosened. Flax fibers at the completion of the epidermis test. Retting is at the same stage as that shown in figure next above. The oortex is shown after it has been swished to and fro in water....
