Biotechnological production of acrylic acid from biomass
The quantitative conversion of lactic acid to acrylic acid would open a new market for renewable resources within the chemical industry. This paper focuses on the theoretical ways of producing acrylics out of renewable resources. It summarizes possible fermentation routes from carbohydrates to acrylic acid and reviews former research activities in this area. It also illustrates novel approaches involving recombinant microorganisms.
