Acetic acid bacteria are versatile organisms converting a number of carbon sources into biomolecules of industrial interest.

Abstract

Acetic acid bacteria are versatile organisms converting a number of carbon sources into biomolecules of industrial interest. Such properties, together with the need to limit chemical syntheses in favor of more sustainable biological processes, make acetic acid bacteria appropriate organisms for food, chemical, medical, pharmaceutical and engineering applications. At current, well-established bioprocesses by acetic acid bacteria are those derived from the oxidative pathways that lead to organic acids, ketones and sugar derivates. Whereas emerging applications include biopolymers, such as bacterial cellulose and fructans, which are getting an increasing interest for the biotechnological industry. However, considering the industrial demand of high performing bioprocesses, the production yield of metabolites obtained by acetic acid bacteria, is still not satisfying. In this paper we review the major acetic acid bacteria industrial applications, considering the current status of bioprocesses. We will also describe new biotechnological advances in order to optimize the industrial production, offering also an overview on future directions.
