Comment:Citric acid production by the filamentous ascomycete fungus, Aspergillus niger, represents the most efficient, highest yielding bioprocess in practice. This process is a model for other filamentous fungal fermentation processes, where multiple products such as organic acids and ethanol, are produced from renewable biomass. These products can be further refined for use as plastic monomers, solvents, or fuels, thereby decreasing dependence on petroleum, the traditional source of these products. The strain ATCC 1015 is also the wildtype strain used in the first patented citric acid process nearly 90 years ago.
