Abstract
Sophorolipids are biobased and biodegradable glycolipid surface-active agents contributing to the shift from petroleum to biobased surfactants, associated with clear environmental benefits. However, their production cost is currently too high to allow commercialisation. Therefore, a continuous sophorolipid production process was evaluated, i.e., a retentostat with an external filtration unit. Despite an initial increase in volumetric productivity, productivity eventually declined to almost 0 g L-1 h-1. Following comprehensive metabolomics on supernatant obtained from a standardised retentostat, we hypothesised exhaustion of the N-starvation-induced autophagy as the main mechanism responsible for the decline in bolaform sophorolipid productivity. Thirty-six metabolites that correlate with RNA/protein autophagy and high sophorolipid productivity were putatively identified. In conclusion, our results unveil a plausible cause of this bola sophorolipid productivity decline in an industrially relevant bioreactor set-up, which may thus impact majorly on future yeast biosurfactant regulation studies and the finetuning of bola sophorolipid production processes.
