The natural environment is inhabited by many species that exhibit very specific metabolic activities that may find industrial applications. The aim of the study was to select non-pathogenic cultures of bacteria of the genus Clostridium and lactic acid bacteria able to convert glycerol into 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PD). Another aim of this study was to identify the isolates that best produced 1,3-propanediol both from pure and crude glycerol. The most efficient strains identified (Cl. butyricum)doi:10.4236/aim.2013.32027 fatcat:5p2nlx2sg5eencl6bj5nitiy6m
