Abstract

In this study, Sophora flavescens residues (SFR) were used for L-lactic acid production and were mixed with food waste (FW) to assess the effects of different compositions of SFR and FW. Positive synergistic effects of mixed substrates were achieved with co-fermentation. Co-fermentation increased the proportion of L-lactic acid by decreasing the co-products of ethanol and other organic acids. A maximum L-lactic acid concentration of 48.4 g/L and L-lactic acid conversion rate of 0.904 g/g total sugar were obtained through co-fermentation of SFR and FW at the optimal ratio of 1:1.5. These results were approximately 6-fold those obtained during mono-fermentation of SFR. Co-fermentation of SFR and FW provides a suitable C/N ratio and pH for effective open fermentative production of L-lactic acid.
