  Relevance   of microbial coculture fermentations in biotechnology

  J Bader, E   Mast‐Gerlach, MK Popović… - Journal of applied …, 2010 - Wiley   Online Library
  The purpose of this article is to review coculture fermentations   in industrial biotechnology. Examples
  for the advantageous utilization of cocultures instead of single   cultivations include the production
  of bulk chemicals, enzymes, food additives, antimicrobial   substances and microbial fuel ...

Acetobacter aceti and Gluconobacter roseus, which are known to be responsible for the spoilage of wine, are used for current generation in batch-type microbial biofuel cells and it has been shown for the first time that these two microorganisms do not require mediators for the transfer of electrons to the anode. Three biofuel cells were constructed with two cells containing the pure cultures of each of the microorganisms as the biocatalyst (A-MFC, G-MFC) and the third cell was constructed with the mixed culture of these two microorganisms as the biocatalyst (AG-MFC). The performance of the biofuel cells was evaluated in terms of open circuit voltage (OCV), fuel consumption rate, internal resistance, power output, and coulombic efficiency. The mixed culture cell (AG-MFC) exhibits a better overall performance compared to the other cells.
