    Abstract: In the present study, solid state fermentation (SSF) was evaluated using a novel PolyHIPE Polymer (PHP) matrix. This matrix was developed with an approach to improve the production of antibiotics. For the production of the matrix, a batch reactor was operated with a mixing speed of 300 rpm at differents mixing times (5, 10, 15 min) as a consequence... Show More
