For the fermentation product: (2 marks for points 1, 2,3 and 5; 10 marks for point 4) 1. Write the chemical formula of the raw material(s) and the product(s) 2.

Indicate the reaction that takes place and include any competing reactions 3. State the Canada/world product rates 4. Describe the fermentation process itself in as much detail – this includes(but is not limited to!!) the configuration of the reactor vessel, materials of construction, whether the process is aerobic/anaerobic, batch or continuous and the substrate requirements. Indicate any special considerations for this fermentation process. If possible, include a diagram. 5. Indicate the downstream processes that need to take place for the separation of the desired product.
