Abstract: Itaconic and fumaric acids can be produced via fungal fermentation based on noble industrial biotechnology. The innovative aspect of technology includes rational strain development, high concentration fermentation and process optimization along with morphology and process control. The feasibility of cellulosic feedstocks beyond sugars and scaling-up are under investigation.
