Figure 1. Initial steps for Inoculum preparation
AINIA provides inoculum for its posterior use in the industrial unit and the production of succinic acid.
The optimization of the inoculum preparation process has been done to obtain an inoculum with succinic acid production capacity, with high microbial growth, and without contamination. This step is critical because a suitable inoculum is essential for the next steps involves in the succinic acid production.
Figure 2. Succinic acid measurement tests
Before delivery, in AINIA’s facilities the proper microbial growth and the succinic production capacity of the inoculum is evaluated using standard kits.
